Species Protection: Critical Legal Issues
This one-day course will provide education on issues involving the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in land, water, and energy development activities throughout the nation and emphasize the Act's importance to the species, agencies, landowners, developers and citizens.
Mr. Quarles will participate in a panel discussion on "Aviation Protection Laws: ESA, Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act," and Mr. Thornton will participate in a panel discussion on "State, Tribal, and Local Government and the Endangered Species Act."
This course is appropriate for lawyers and related professionals that advocate on behalf of environmental interests, or those with clients whose activities require compliance with the parameters of the ESA, such as developers, utilities, and agriculturalists.

Mr. Quarles is a highly respected environment and land use practitioner who advises clients on wildlife and species protection issues under the Endangered Species Act, Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and the Golden Eagle Protection Act at both the state and federal level.
