        The Endangered Species Act | Ocean Today

        Many marine species are in danger of becoming extinct, meaning they are disappearing from the ocean. The Endangered Species Act, passed by Congress in 1973, protects animals and plants that are in danger of becoming extinct. This conservation law is one of the most important tools for keeping species from disappearing in the United States. Today, the Endangered Species list protects over 2,000 species, over a hundred of which are marine.
