The Endangered Species Act: 50 Years of Conserving Species

Join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, May 19–December 28, 2023! This landmark legislation is a powerful and effective tool for conserving species and their habitats.

Under the Act, NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the protection, conservation, and recovery of more than 160 endangered and threatened marine and anadromous species. At NOAA Fisheries, we rely on the best available science to implement the ESA. During this monumental commemoration of 50 years, we highlight our science, conservation, partnerships, and people who implement the ESA through the features and videos below.

Follow along on our NOAA Fisheries social media channels and stay tuned for more content.
