School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) faculty member Jeremy Bruskotter is quoted in a recent Time magazine article that discusses rollbacks to the Endangered Species Act and conservation scientists concerns about the impacts on and future of at-risk species.

“There’s been a continuous eroding of the protections of the Endangered Species Act,” Bruskotter tells TIME. “What’s frustrating as a conservationist is we look at the Endangered Species Act and it’s one of those acts that you can point to and you can say, ‘this thing is actually having an effect.’ Research time and again has demonstrated that.”  The article references a study conducted by Bruskotter and SENR colleagues Robyn Wilson, Ramiro Berardo and Kristina Slagle published in Conservation Letters that found strong support for the ESA among the American public that has persisted for at least the past two decades.
