In 1966, Congress enacted legislation which afforded native animals legal protection. Since that time, this legislation has been twice revised. The current Endangered Species Act of 1973, provides not only animals but also plants with what appears to be a reasonable degree of protection and survival. Recent court decisions support the concept and validity of the Endangered Species Act of 1973. This paper is the result of a survey conducted throughout 14 Federal departments and agencies in order to obtain their interpretation of this legislation, and more specifically, how bats are protected by this interpretation. The survey included four questions: (1) What Federal laws, regulations and guidelines govern your Agency's actions regarding both the protection and/or eradication of bats; (2) How has your Agency interpreted these laws, regulations and guidelines in the formation of its internal policies; (3) What do your protection policies include; (4) If eradication is necessary, what methods and recommendations are followed, and what chemicals and in what dosages are allowed.
