An effort has been made to italicize technical words or phrases and clearly define them in the glossary.
The Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 was enacted to conserve threatened and endangered species of wildlife and plants. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is responsible for all on-shore and freshwater species. Anyone violating this law is subject to civil and criminal penalties. The State Endangered Species Act is modeled after the Federal Endangered Species Act. The State Act is used to conserve wildlife and plant species considered to be threatened and endangered in the state.
