Did you know that the ESA not only protects and preserves species, it also protects local economies? Example: Protecting salmon species supports commercial and recreational fishing. 

Search online and find another species that is currently being protected so as to support a local economy.

Ninety-nine percent of species protected by the list have avoided extinction. Passed with bipartisan support in 1973, the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is our nation’s most effective law to protect species from extinction.

Grizzly bears, humpback whales, and bald eagles are just some of the 46 species now listed as recovered under the ESA. The rebound of any species is a gradual process that requires a long-term commitment and is dependent on many factors including direct threats, habitat, food availability, reproduction rate, and climate

The protection of sea turtles contributes to local economies, particularly in coastal regions. Conservation efforts have fostered sustainable tourism and ecotourism industries, such as sea turtle programs in Costa Rica, which provide income for communities and raise awareness about these species and their habitats.

Bees! Bees are protected now due to them getting killed off. Bees help the production of a good chunk of our crops. Without bees local economies would not thrive. More hives are being put out to help give more bees homes. I have a bee garden, it is full of flowers that are known for bees to love. Bees do not just help local but globally as well.
