FWS Extends Comment Period on Proposal for Permits for Incidental Take of Eagles
On September 30, 2022, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service published a proposed rule revising the regulations concerning the incidental take of eagles and eagle nests. The proposed rule would continue to authorize specific permits but would also create a general permit for certain activities. Such activities may include wind-energy generation projects or power line infrastructure projects that may disturb bald eagles and their nests. The Service also proposed to remove the third-party monitoring requirements from incidental take permits. The Service has extended the comment period on the proposed rule by an additional 30 days.
Written comments are now due by December 29, 2022.
- Read the proposed rule.
- Read the notice extending the comment period.
- Submit comments on the proposed rule.
