About this Episode

Suppose you wanted to check out how our efforts to save endangered species are going. Our guest, Jessica Owley, tried to do that and to observe what is happening where habitat conservation plans have been put in place. Things didn’t go so well. We discuss the structure of the Endangered Species Act, snails, dams, the God Squad, “incidental take permits,” how it’s all supposed to work, and, mainly, how Jessica was stymied in her efforts to figure out how it actually is working. (Brought to you by coffee sent by listener Adam.)
