ESA at 50: Commemorative Posters
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service designed a series of commemorative posters featuring eight federally-listed species found across the United States. These eight listed species have been the focus of intense recovery efforts working with local communities, state and federal agencies, Tribes, conservation groups and private sector partners.
Today, many people don’t have easy access to nature, and most of us will never see an endangered species. This art aims to help people connect with endangered species by bringing them into people’s homes, onto their screens and into their hearts.
The posters feature the following species: California condor, polar bear, black-footed ferret, Atlantic salmon, Florida manatee, rusty patched bumblebee, Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, and Kaʻū silversword. Learn more about the species featured and what is being done to help recover them.
