Can culturally significant animals-- as well as archaeological sites, old buildings, and places of cultural importance to an American Indian tribe or other community, be eligible for the U.S. National Register of Historic Places-- and hence eligible for special consideration in project planning by federal agencies? Two recent cases have raised this seldom if ever before considered question. Although several answers are viable, I think the most efficient approach is to consider animals as possible elements that contribute to the eligibility of places-- districts, sites, buildings, structures, or objects-- for the National Register of Historic Places.
