Impact of The Endangered Species Act on Development Projects

Protection of flora and fauna has become increasingly important at the national level, and developers frequently find that they must comply with the Endangered Species Act - the federal law that protects threatened and endangered plants, insects, fish and wildlife, and their habitats.

Understanding the implications of the ESA at all stages of the development process can help developers save time and money. In this on-demand webinar you will learn about: how the ESA works and which provisions of the ESA are most important to developers; common problems that developers face under the ESA and strategies for avoiding or solving those problems; and new and emerging ESA issues and how they may affect developers.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review the history of ESA.
  • You will be able to explain how the ESA works.
  • You will be able to discuss how the ESA affects development projects.
  • You will be able to identify new and emerging ESA issues facing developers.
