Dr. Dale Goble and Dr. Michael Scott are working on the ESA @ 30 Project which is a multidisciplinary project with scientists, economists, policy analysts, and lawyers from different Universities to analyze and help interpret what recovery means in the Endangered Species Act so that the overarching goal of “conserving species” is achieved. The ESA @ 30 Project has entailed two national conferences, nearly a dozen smaller workshops, and a series of Regional Directors of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Nature Conservancy-Smith Fellows, and the Western Association of Fish and Game Administrators.
