The Endangered Species Act at 40
This year, the ESA turned 40, and many conferences around the nation are convening to determine whether the ESA needs an update or perhaps more radical change. In that vein, the California Environmental Law & Policy Center at University of California Davis School of Law is hosting next Friday “The Endangered Species Act at 40: Examining Its Past and Exploring Its Future.” I’ll be speaking on the last panel of the day to discuss the ESA’s future. The panel, moderated by CELPC Director Richard Frank, will include Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity and Holly Doremus of UC Berkeley Law. The conference will also feature addresses by former Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt and former Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Jane Lubchenco. If you’re in the Sacramento area, I encourage you to register and attend!
