Background

    The Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) prohibits activities with

authorizes the permittee to conduct activities with United States 
endangered or threatened species for scientific purposes, enhancement 
of propagation or survival, or interstate commerce (the latter only in 
the event that it facilitates scientific purposes or enhancement of 
propagation or survival). Our regulations implementing section 
10(a)(1)(A) for these permits are found at 50 CFR 17.22 for endangered 
wildlife species, 50 CFR 17.32 for threatened wildlife species, 50 CFR 
17.62 for endangered plant species, and 50 CFR 17.72 for threatened 
plant species.
