  • Answer: Nation’s native plants and animals
  • Answer: 1,967 species worldwideas endangered or threatened; 1,372 in the U.S.
  • Such an act may include significanthabitat modification or degradationwhere it actually kills or injures wildlifeby significantly impairing essentialbehavioral patterns, including breeding,feeding, or sheltering.
  • Answer: FWS biologists
  • Answer: False.
  • Critical habitats are geographic areas that contain the physical or biological features that are essential to the conservation of the species and may need special management. Only applies to Federal agency actions or federally funded activities.
  • Endangered Species Act: Jeopardy!

    1. 1. Endangered Species Act
    2. 2. …it expressed concern that native WHAT were in danger of becoming extinct? When Congress passed the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in 1973…
    3. 3. Answer: Imperiled species and the ecosystems on which they depend The purpose of the ESA is to protect and recover what?
    4. 4. Terrestrial and fresh water organism Marine wildlife
    5. 5. Answer: Endangered or Threatened
    6. 6. Answer: a species is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. “Endangered” means:
    7. 7. Answer: FALSE. “Pest” insects are not eligible for listing as endangered or threatened. True or False? All species of plants and animals, including pest insects, are eligible for listing.
    8. 8. In March 2011, the FWS listed _____ species worldwide as endangered or threatened, of which ____ occurred in the United States.
    9. 9.  1)damage to, or destruction of, a species’  habitat  2) overutilization of the species  for commercial, recreational, scientific,  or educational purposes  3) disease or predation  4) inadequacy of existing protection; and  5) other natural or manmade factors that affect the continued existence of the species.
    10. 10.  The FWS also maintains a list of “candidate” species. These are species for which the FWS has enough information to warrant proposing them for listing but is precluded from doing so by higher listing priorities. While listing actions of higher priority go forward, the FWS works with States, Tribes, private landowners, private partners, and other Federal agencies to carry out conservation actions for these species to prevent further decline and possibly eliminate the need for listing.
    11. 11. The ESA protects endangered and threatened species and their habitats by prohibiting the “____” of listed animals and the interstate or international trade in listed plants and animals, including their parts and products, except under Federal permit.
    12. 12. …defined as “to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect or attempt to engage in any such conduct.” The ESA makes it unlawful for a person to take a listed animal without a permit. “Take” is… ?
    13. 13. The term “____” is defined as “an act which actually kills or injures wildlife.”
    14. 14. Who writes and implements these plans with the assistance of species experts; other Federal, State, and local agencies; Tribes; nongovernmental organizations; academia; and other stakeholders?
    15. 15. It is extremely rare that a project ends up being withdrawn or terminated because of jeopardy to a listed species. True or False?
    16. 16. The ESA also requires the designation of “________ _______” for listed species.
    17. 17. Options:
    18. 18.  Landowners may receive a permit to take such species incidental to otherwise legal activities, provided they have developed an approved habitat conservation plan (HCP).
    19. 19.  Assessment of the likely impacts on the species from the proposed action  Steps that the permit holder will take to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the impacts  Funding for HCP
    20. 20.  Non-Federal landowners voluntarily aid in the recovery of listed species by improving or maintaining wildlife habitat. Under SHAs, landowners manage the enrolled property and may return it to originally agreed-upon “baseline” conditions for the species and its habitat at the end of the agreement.
    21. 21.  Conservation agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements between landowners and one or more other parties to reduce or remove threats to candidate or other at- risk species.
