      Purpose is to provide a means whereby the ecosystems upon which endangered and threatened species depend may be conserved, to provide a program for the conservation of such endangered and threatened species, and to take such steps as may be appropriate to achieve the purposes of the treaties and conventions for the protection of endangered species. Under ESA, the policy of Congress is that all federal departments and agencies must seek to conserve endangered and threatened species, and must use their authorities in the furtherance of the purposes of this act. Further, federal agencies must cooperate with state and local agencies to resolve water resource issues in concert with conservation of endangered species.
