Restoration & Conservation

Celebrate 50 Years of the Endangered Species Act

May 19th is Endangered Species Day and 2023 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act (ESA). In 1973, the bill was passed with almost unanimous bipartisan support to protect species in danger of extinction. Fifty years later, 55 species have recovered—including the bald eagles we regularly see along the Laguna de Santa Rosa! While bald eagles are no longer on the list, 1,678 animal and plant species are listed as threatened or endangered and 23 species have gone extinct. Clearly more work is needed!

Our conservation and restoration work throughout the watershed help in the important work to save rare and endangered species.

Read more about the ESA and how our programs helps ensure the survival of many endangered or threatens species in the May issue of our e-news.
