Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) requires all Federal agencies to prevent or modify any project authorized, funded, or carried out by the Agency that is likely to jeopardize the continued existence of any endangered species or threatened species or their habitats. In order to determine if a proposed activity will jeopardize endangered or threatened species, FEMA must consult with either the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or the National Marine Fisheries Service. Compliance with ESA is a requirement for all FEMA-funded programs and activities. This course provides training on the implementation of ESA Section 7 within the context of FEMA’s programs and trains Environmental and Historic Preservation (EHP) staff on proper consultation procedures and strategies for streamlining compliance with ESA.
