Endangered Species


Endangered species are of central concern to conservation.  But answering the most basic question, “What is an endangered species?,” is surprisingly difficult.  The difficulty rises from inescapably complex dependency that “endangered species,” as a concept, has on science and ethics.  These concerns extend far beyond mere academic interest.  For example, one of the world’s most powerful conservation laws, the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973, suffers from the difficulty of answering this question.
