The Endangered Species Act is a successful act that protects a diverse array of plants and animals across the US; however, the US Government wants to roll back the protections by limiting the term habitat to make it difficult to protect species.

A US government that is hellbent on developing Natural Resources on land and in water will stop at nothing to ensure mining and oil/gas companies have very little obstacles in their way. One of the obstacles is the US Endangered Species Act that is responsible for protecting the Polar Bear, Manatee, and Bald Eagle.
The Trump Administration recently proposed changes to the Act that would put some of the species and any future species at risk of extinction due to human disturbance.
I talk about the details of the changes proposed during this episode.
Do you think the changes will be approved by Congress? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
