Collaborating in endangered species recovery has the potential to save significant costs for water users such as farmers, industries, and households, and ultimately society as a whole. Collaborative conservation also allows the employment of a broader range of recovery tools than traditional regulatory mechanisms used in Endangered Species Act (ESA) implementation. Professor Loomis will discuss the benefits from voluntary collaboration as opposed to the "business as usual" regulatory approaches in the case of a collaborative fish recovery program in the Upper Colorado River Basin.
