ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the removal of several endangered species from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants. It says that the delisting of several species such as bald eagle and Eggert's sunflower, shows recovery success. However, it says that thisrecovery represents one percent of the endangered species, leading some people to conceive that the Endangered Species Act of 1973 is not succeeding. Statistics showing other measures of the recovery success are offered.
