Once a species goes on the endangered species list can it be harmed under any circumstances?

    Yes, under some very extraordinary cases, some endangered animals may be interfered with. In this book, the author talks about how the Bowhead Whale, once a major staple of the Inupiat people of Alaska, is now very endangered. Despite this, the native people are allowed to harvest 00.55 percent of the estimated population each year to feed themselves and other tribes. This is good because over fishing from Japanese and American whalers are what depleted the population, not the thirty or so whales the natives take.
