ABSTRACT
The U.S. has more than its fair share of animals in danger. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, about 1,260 plants and animals are on the federal list of threatened and endangered species. In 1973, Congress passed the Endangered Species Act to protect plants and animals at risk of becoming extinct. One of the first species to make the list was the bald eagle. Since the law's inception, seven species have made it off the list because of successful recovery programs, including the American alligator, the American peregrine falcon, and the Aleutian Canada goose.
