Endangered Species Act of 1973
The endangered species act is a law that conserves endangered and threatened species of wildlife and plants. An “endangered” animal or plant is an animal or plant that is in danger of becoming extinct. If the animal is an insect that is a pest, they are not protected. A “threatened” animal or plant is likely to become endangered. If you disobey the law you can be punished.

Some information straight from the law:

AN ACT To provide for the conservation of endangered and threatened species of
fish, wildlife, and plants, and for other purposes.

Sec 3 (6) The term ‘‘endangered species’’ means any species which is
in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its
range other than a species of the Class Insecta determined by the
Secretary to constitute a pest whose protection under the provisions
of this Act would present an overwhelming and overriding
risk to man.

Sec 3 (20) The term ‘‘threatened species’’ means any species which is
likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future
throughout all or a significant portion of its range.
