Cato Daily Podcast: Grizzly Bears and Endangered Species Recovery

PERC’s Executive Director, Brian Yablonski, spoke with Cato Daily Podcast host Caleb Brown about the changes that should be made to the Endangered Species Act in order to encourage greater species recovery. By making a rare species’ presence a liability rather than an asset, an Endangered Species Act listing can undermine the incentives for private landowners to accommodate species. So long as the bear remains listed, property owners face burdensome regulations if grizzlies migrate through their land—not to mention the other costs and challenges predators like grizzlies present for ranchers and other property owners.
