The Endangered Species Act has the power to bring back species from the brink of extinction and allow them to rebuild to healthy levels. It has worked for the grizzly bear, gray wolf, and bald eagle, and we hope it will do the same for sea turtles, right whales, and, if they are listed, great white sharks, too. Without the protections of the Endangered Species Act, we may lose these critically important species for good.
