Does the Endangered Species Act need to be fixed? Well the answer is “yes” according to Dr. Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute, who recently explored this issue for the prestigious policy think tank and has this to say: “The Endangered Species Act has placed man in an inferior position to all other creatures in the animal kingdom. This should be rectified by implementing four basic human protections: Listings of endangered species should be based on independent peer-reviewed science conducted by scientists not employed by government or activist organizations; protected habitat should be inventoried before any new habitat is designated; restrictions on private property for habitat should be compensated; and an ombudsmen should be established in the U.S. Department of Interior to represent the interests of private property owners.”
