Conservation Policy Series: 50 Years of Endangered Species Legislation

We are happy to announce the second presentation with Michael Young, Department of Interior, Assistant Solicitor for Fish and Wildlife. Mr. Young has over three decades of experience with the DOI and will be providing a number of new presentations for the monthly Conservation Policy Series. The evolution of Endangered Species legislation will be the topic of today’s program. Mr. Young will detail the process by which Endangered Species legislation has gone from a primitive idea with little legal force in 1966, to the Endangered Species Act today, considered one of the strongest environmental regulations in existence.

During the broadcast, Mr. Young will be available in the Livestream chat room to respond to questions or comments. We look forward to your participation, August 11 at 2:00 pm ET!

Questions for presenters can be submitted via chat room on the Livestream video player.

For chat room use, we suggest first time users “join” Livestream, prior to broadcast time.
