Charles Irvine spoke at the Federal Wildlife Law conference held in Austin Texas on October 16 & 17, 2017.
As part of a panel focused on trends and complexities relating to coastal development, Mr. Irvine discussed the protection and management of federal wildlife in areas of coastal and offshore waters. Mr. Irvine focused his discussion on recent legal developments related to two federal statutes: the Magnuson-Stevens Act, which, among other things, provides for the identification, designation, and conservation of Essential Fish Habitat; and The Antiquities Act of 1906, which grants the President the authority to designate national monuments, including marine national monuments designed to protect aquatic ecosystems.
