USFWS Seeks Input on Plans to Streamline Permit Process for Incidental Takes of Eagles

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is seeking public input on proposed rulemaking to streamline and simplify the permit process for incidental takes of eagles due to increasing interaction between eagles and industrial infrastructure. USFWS last updated the process in 2016, when the agency increased the maximum duration of an incidental take permit from five years to thirty years, and is accepting suggestions to further simplify the process through October 29, 2021.
