This year is the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, the landmark law that has saved up to 99% of the species it protects. The act provides federal protections for thousands of species and is also upheld at the state level by wildlife management agencies across the United States. Currently, the Association of Zoos and Aquariums is supporting the Recovering America's Wildlife Act in order bolster protections for at-risk wildlife even further. If passed, it would provide annual investment to aid states, territories and tribes in collaborative wildlife conservation, science education and species recovery efforts.
