The U.S Endangered Species Conservation Act of 1969
“Why does the U.S prohibit the importation of any endangered species for personal use?”
The Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966 was a landmark piece of legislation that provided federal protection for endangered species. This was upgraded three years later with the passage of The Endangered Species Conservation Act of 1969. This legislation designated species deemed endangered worldwide to be critical and outlawed the importation of them for personal use.
