Foreign Species Listed by the ESA

Did you know that over 500 species of wildlife are protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act? While the jurisdiction is limited to the affairs of U.S. citizens in other countries, this protection does help to raise awareness of these species' survival needs and also helps provide funding for conservation efforts. If you'd like to see a list of these species, click here.
