This also includes how the government portrays its laws. For example, the Endangered Species Act is ineffective at accomplishing its designated task—protecting endangered species. In 2001, a forest fire had wretchedly killed four fire fighters. The United States Government itself caused the gloomy deaths, because they did not allow the four fire fighters to draw water from a nearby stream because of the appalling Endangered Species Act. There was no reason to disallow fire fighters from drawing water from the stream, since there were no endangered species inhabiting the stream—but there were several endangered owl species in the burning forests, which the government did not let them extinguish. Meanwhile, the US Government authorized an ‘expansion’ of a frail river to provide an improved and more sustainable habitat. Instead, it had accidently killed 34,000 fish from the now vacant river. Another sceptical factor is how the United States deliberately approved and enforced the law of camouflaging drilling wells. They claim that this will efficiently help reduce the environmental impact on the surrounding area. This perceptibly shows that the United States does not know how to fix these drilling well problems, let alone comprehend what problems they are causing.

At the end of this elongated wait, not every questionable specie is accepted on the list, as many are rejected. In addition, many will not receive tolerable support anytime soon. This is because of a‘focus bubble’ where 64 species are maintained appropriately at one time. There is also a redundant line up to be supported or have a recovery plan in action too, and any species that do not need support have to be removed immediately so that species that need the support acquire it. The United States Government also does not supply or save up satisfactory amounts of money for successful recovery of endangered species. For example, an average of about 30-50 million dollars is compulsory to successfully recover species with less than 1000 individuals. However, the United States only provides a total of less than a few million dollars to countless species, which is useless for the
