Abstract: This information collection covers permit applications and reports that our Division of Management Authority uses to determine the eligibility of applicants for permits requested in accordance with the criteria in various Federal wildlife conservation laws and international treaties, including: • Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). • Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.). • Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371 et seq.). • Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668). • Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) (27 U.S.T. 1087). • Marine Mammal Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 1361–1407 et seq.). • Wild Bird Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 4901–4916 et seq.). Service regulations implementing these statutes and treaties are in Chapter I, Subchapter B of Title 50, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These regulations stipulate general and specific requirements that when met mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:57 Nov 26, 2010 Jkt 223001 allow us to issue permits to authorize activities that are otherwise prohibited. In addition to the forms and reports currently approved under OMB Control No. 1018–0093, this revised ICR includes: • FWS Forms 3–200–74 (Single-Use Export Permits Under a Master File or Annual Program File) and 3–200–75 (Registration of a Production Facility for Export of Certain Native Species). These forms are currently approved under OMB Control Number 1018–0137. If OMB approves this ICR, we will discontinue 1018–0137. • Four new forms that we believe will reduce burden on applicants, improve customer service, and allow us to process applications and issue CITES documents quickly: (1) FWS Form 3–200–80 (Export of Fertilized Live Eggs, Caviar, or Meat from Aquacultured Paddlefish or Sturgeon (CITES)). Applicants currently use FWS Form 3–200–24 or 3–200–76 for this activity. (2) FWS Form 3–200–85 (Master File for the Export of Live Captive-bred Animals (CITES)). Applicants currently use FWS Form 3–200–24 for this activity. (3) FWS Form 3–200–86 (Photography of Marine Mammals for Educational or Commercial Purposes (MMPA)). Applicants currently use FWS Form 3– 200–43 for this activity. (4) FWS Form 3–200–87 (Transfer of Live Captive-held Marine Mammals (MMPA)). Applicants currently submit letters for notification or authorization. Comments: On August 31, 2010, we published in the Federal Register (75 FR 53328) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on November 1, 2010. We received one comment. The comment did not address issues surrounding the proposed collection of information or the cost and hour burden estimates, but did object to other aspects of our permitting program and the killing of wildlife. We have not made any changes to this collection as a result of the comment. The commenter did question the groups that we included under the heading ‘‘Affected Public’’ in our previous Federal Register notice and stated that the entire U.S. public and animal protection groups are affected by this information collection. The groups listed under this heading were potential respondents. To ensure clarity, we have changed the heading title to ‘‘Description of Respondents.’’ We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73119 • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) (Administration Act) and the Refuge Recreation Act of 1962 (16 U.S.C. 460k–460k–4) (Recreation Act) govern the administration and uses of national wildlife refuges and wetland management districts. The Administration Act consolidated all of the different refuge areas into a single National Wildlife Refuge System (System). It also authorizes us to permit public accommodations, including commercial visitor services, on lands of the System when we find that the activity is compatible and appropriate with the purpose for which the refuge was established. The Recreation Act allows the use of refuges for public recreation when it is not inconsistent or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge. In our general refuge regulations, we provide for public entry for specialized purposes, including economic activities such as the operation of guiding and other visitor services on refuges by concessionaires or cooperators under the appropriate legal instrument or special use permits (50 CFR 25.41, 25.61, 26.36, 27.71, 27.91, 27.97, 29.1, 29.2, 30.11, 31.2, 31.13, 31.14, 31.16, 32.2(1), 36.31, 36.32, 36.33, 36.37, 36.39, and 36.41, and 43 CFR 5). These regulations provide the authorities and procedures for allowing permits on refuges. Previously, we used FWS Form 3–1383 (Special Use Application and Permit) for all activities. However, experience has indicated that some types of activities, such as commercial use or research, require that we collect detailed information on the specific activity so that we can more effectively manage the numerous uses being conducted on System lands. We are proposing to use three forms as applications for Special Use Permits: (1) FWS Form 3–1383. We will use this form for the majority of activities including, but not limited to: • Special events, such as fishing tournaments. • Personal events, such as weddings. • Beneficial management activities, such as wood cutting or rotational grazing, that we use to provide the best habitat possible on some refuges. • Group visits and other one-time events. (2) FWS Form 3–XXXX (Commercial Special Use Application and Permit). We will use this form for commercial activities including, but not limited to: • Recreational visitor service operations. • Commercial filming. • Agricultural activities. • Guiding for fishing, hunting, wildlife education, and interpretation. • Building and using cabins to support subsistence or commercial activities (in Alaska). (3) FWS Form 3–YYYY (Research Special Use Application and Permit). We will use this form to authorize research and monitoring activities on a refuge. We plan to collect the following information. However, not all information will have to be provided, depending on the permit and specific activity: • Type of activity/project. • Identifying data (such as, name, business, or principal investigator, title, organization or affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address). • Whether the request is for a new permit or renewal or modification of an existing permit. • Description, frequency and time line of the activity/project. • Location/map. • Assistants/subpermittees. • Description of how the activity/ project will help the refuge fulfill its purpose (FWS Form 3–YYYY). • Insurance coverage. • Licenses/permits required. • Support/subcontractors used to support the activity. • Equipment/gear and materials. • Whether or not the activity requires overnight stay. • Transportation logistics and requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Introduction With this notice, we initiate our process for developing a CCP for Bandon Marsh, Nestucca Bay, and Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuges in Coos, Tillamook, and Lincoln Counties, Oregon. This notice complies with our CCP policy to (1) advise other Federal PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and State agencies, Tribes, and the public of our intention to conduct detailed planning on these refuges, and (2) obtain suggestions and information on the scope of issues to consider in the environmental document and during development of the CCP. Background The CCP Process The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) (Refuge Administration Act), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Refuge Administration Act. Each unit of the National Wildlife Refuge System was established for specific purposes. These purposes are the foundation for developing and prioritizing the conservation and management goals and objectives for each refuge within the National Wildlife Refuge System, and determining compatible public uses for each refuge. The planning process is a way for us and the public to evaluate management goals and objectives for refuge wildlife, plant, and habitat conservation, while providing for wildlife-dependent recreation opportunities that are compatible with the refuge’s establishing purposes and the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Our CCP process provides participation opportunities for Tribal, State, and local governments; agencies; organizations; and the public. At this time we encourage input in the form of issues, concerns, ideas, and suggestions for the future management of Bandon Marsh, Nestucca Bay, and Siletz Bay Refuges. We will conduct an environmental review of this project and prepare an EA in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA) (42 U.S.C.

I. Abstract

    The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 
U.S.C. 668dd-668ee) (Administration Act) and the Refuge Recreation Act 
of 1962 (16 U.S.C. 460k-460k-4) (Recreation Act) govern the 
administration and uses of national wildlife refuges and wetland 
management districts. The Administration Act consolidated all of the 
different refuge areas into a single National Wildlife Refuge System 
(System). It also authorizes us to permit public accommodations, 
including commercial visitor services, on lands of the System when we 
find that the activity is compatible and appropriate with the purpose 
for which the refuge was established. The Recreation Act allows the use 
of refuges for public recreation when it is not inconsistent or does 
not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge.
    In our general refuge regulations, we provide for public entry for 
specialized purposes, including economic activities such as the 
operation of guiding and other visitor services on refuges by 
concessionaires or cooperators under the appropriate legal instrument 
or special use permits (50 CFR 25.41, 25.61, 26.36, 27.71, 27.91, 
27.97, 29.1, 29.2, 30.11, 31.2, 31.13, 31.14, 31.16, 32.2(1), 36.31, 
36.32, 36.33, 36.37, 36.39, and 36.41, and 43 CFR 5). These regulations 
provide the authorities and procedures for allowing permits on refuges.
    Previously, we used FWS Form 3-1383 (Special Use Application and 
Permit) for all activities. However, experience has indicated that some 
types of activities, such as commercial use or research, require that 
we collect detailed information on the specific activity so that we can 
more effectively manage the numerous uses being conducted on System 
lands.
    We are proposing to use three forms as applications for Special Use 
Permits:
    (1) FWS Form 3-1383. We will use this form for the majority of 
activities including, but not limited to:
     Special events, such as fishing tournaments.
     Personal events, such as weddings.
     Beneficial management activities, such as wood cutting or 
rotational grazing, that we use to provide the best habitat possible on 
some refuges.
     Group visits and other one-time events.
    (2) FWS Form 3-XXXX (Commercial Special Use Application and 
Permit). We will use this form for commercial activities including, but 
not limited to:
     Recreational visitor service operations.
     Commercial filming.
     Agricultural activities.
     Guiding for fishing, hunting, wildlife education, and 
interpretation.
     Building and using cabins to support subsistence or 
commercial activities (in Alaska).
    (3) FWS Form 3-YYYY (Research Special Use Application and Permit). 
We will use this form to authorize research and monitoring activities 
on a refuge.
    We plan to collect the following information. However, not all 
information will have to be provided, depending on the permit and 
specific activity:
     Type of activity/project.
     Identifying data (such as, name, business, or principal 
investigator, title, organization or affiliation, address, telephone 
number, and e-mail address).
