Seminar Overview

Our 26th Annual Endangered Species Act conference is a two-day seminar in which ESA practitioners, agency officials, and scientists provide the latest and most important information you’ll need for ESA compliance. This conference will help attorneys, businesses, conservation organizations, and government staff to understand the complexities of the law.  In addition to providing updates on federal litigation, legislative and regulatory changes, updates to the Section 7 consultation process and Section 4 listings, and ethical and litigation considerations; this year, ESA practitioners will discuss implementation of the “Culverts case”, ESA advocacy in the context of the Dusky Gopher Frog litigation, and reintroductions of listed species on the west coast, including wolves, grizzlies, fishers, and Pacific salmon. It will also provide practical insights and an opportunity to network with experts and colleagues.

Join our Program Co-Chairs, James M. Lynch, of K&L Gates LLP, and Martha F. Wehling, of the Forest and Environmental Policy Counsel for the Washington Forest Protection Association, along with the outstanding faculty they have assembled.
