Poll Shows Broad Support for Endangered Species Act Reform
WASHINGTON, D.C., – Most Americans think the Endangered Species Act is outdated and needs to be revised, a survey by Morning Consult shows. The poll conducted in early August adds impetus to congressional efforts to overhaul the increasingly outdated 1970s-era statute.
The survey shows:
· 63 percent of Americans support modernizing the ESA;
· 62 of Americans believe the act should help with species recovery, as opposed to merely cataloguing changes in their populations;
· 69 percent of Americans want the federal government to offer resources to third parties to help species recovery; and
· 49 percent of Americans believe that state or local authorities, rather than the federal government, lead in recovery of endangered and threatened species. Only 31 percent of Americans favor the federal government taking the lead.read more
