SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Section 9 of the Act and Federal Regulation prohibits the “take” of wildlife species listed as threatened or endangered species. Under the Act, the term “take” means to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect listed wildlife, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. The Service may, under limited circumstances, issue permits to authorize incidental take, i.e. that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, the carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing permits for endangered species are at 50 CFR 17.22. Start Printed Page 65875
