ESA Intrastate Species

ESA Intrastate Species

Abstract

Proposals have been put forward to remove U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) protections from species found in only one state (intrastate species). Most ESA-listed species have limited ranges, which means most occur in a single state. Explore how many species could lose ESA protections if such a proposal was passed by Congress.
