Celebrating 50 years of protecting endangered species

National Forests

The National Forests, across the country, are home to dozens of species of fish, frogs, and wildlife that are on the endangered species list.

The Endangered Species Act was signed on December 28, 1973, and has prevented the extinction of 99% of the species under federal protection.

The uninterrupted habitats that extend for hundreds of acres and areas of complete solitude give many species the space needed for recovery of their populations.

Each conservation effort has been a combined project for 50 years between individuals, organizations, and agencies.
