Talking Points on the Environment #15

A Species Protection Plan That Works for Both Wildlife and Humans

Although most Americans oppose the excesses of the Endangered Species Act, many also favor some form of species protection for the most valued species. The best way to protect these species while protecting individual liberty is through a voluntary, incentive-based system.

Elements of such a system might include:

Recommendations developed based on information from David Ridenour of The National Center for Public Policy Research; Myron Ebell, formerly of the American Land Rights Association; John Shanahan of The Heritage Foundation; and EcoSanity by Joseph L. Bast, Peter J. Hill and Richard C. Rue (Madison Books, 1994).

Issue Date: April 12, 1995.
