Description:  This webcast explores what an ESA listing may mean for local governments, how local or regional efforts can be incentivized to cooperate with state or federal policy, how to break down the ‘sue-settle’ model for the betterment of the species, and whether the ESA requires an overhaul and if that is possible.
