This past July, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) proposed changes to regulations that implement portions of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Public comments are due on these proposed changes by September 24, 2018.
This discussion will touch on the Department’s proposed changes, why they are necessary, and how these changes will improve species conservation, transparency, and simplify complex regulatory processes.
Please join us for a presentation by U.S. Deputy Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt as he discusses these proposals and explains why better implementation of the ESA will produce the best conservation results while reducing the regulatory burden on the American people.
