Renewal of Agency Information Collection for Acquisition of Trust Land, 43914-43915 [2013-17546]

Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 43914 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 140 / Monday, July 22, 2013 / Notices measures on their lands as described in the CCAA. Incidental take authorized under the permit would be in the form of harassment, harm, and mortality associated with conservation and monitoring activities necessary to implement the CCAA. 2. The CCAA complies with the requirements of the CCAA policy. Vermejo Park Ranch has developed the CCAA and permit application pursuant to the requirements in the implementing regulations and the issuance criteria for a permit. Conservation benefits for the Rio Grande cutthroat trout from implementation of the CCAA are expected in the form of avoidance of negative impacts; reduction of threats; and conservation, enhancement, and restoration of populations and habitat intended to establish and maintain viable populations of Rio Grande cutthroat trout in Taos County, New Mexico, and Costilla County, Colorado. Also, this CCAA may be used as a model for CCAAs in other parts of the Rio Grande cutthroat trout’s range to encourage cooperative management and conservation. 3. The probable direct and indirect effects of any authorized take will not appreciably reduce the likelihood of the survival and recovery in the wild of any species. The Act’s legislative history establishes the intent of Congress that this issuance criteria be identical to a regulatory finding of no ‘‘jeopardy’’ under section 7(a)(2) of the Act. As a result, issuance of this section 10(a)(1)(A) permit was reviewed by the Service according to provisions of section 7 of the Act. In the Intra-Service Section 7 Conference Opinion, the Service concluded that issuance of a permit will not jeopardize the continued existence of the Rio Grande cutthroat trout or any other species. The taking associated with the implementation of the CCAA will be incidental to efforts associated conservation actions for Rio Grande cutthroat trout in their historic range and gathering important biological information necessary to continue conservation efforts for the species. 4. Implementation of the terms of the CCAA is consistent with applicable Federal, State, and Tribal laws and regulations. The Service is unaware of any law or regulation that would prevent the implementation of the CCAA and the accompanying permit. The permit will include conditions that revoke the take provisions of the permit if any applicable State, Federal, or tribal law or regulation is broken. 5. Implementation of the terms of the CCAA will not be in conflict with any ongoing conservation programs for species covered by the permit. The VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:15 Jul 19, 2013 Jkt 229001 CCAA in New Mexico and Colorado for the Rio Grande cutthroat trout furthers ongoing conservation activities for the species’ conservation and is essential in developing additional conservation agreements within the historic range of the Rio Grande cutthroat trout. The Service is a participant on the Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout Conservation Team, which is a consortium of agencies that has been working together to conserve, restore, and enhance Rio Grande cutthroat populations rangewide. This combined State, Federal, Tribal, and private effort should provide conservation incentives and result in greater success in reducing threats and stabilizing the status of Rio Grande cutthroat trout. 6. The Applicant has shown capability for and commitment to implementing all of the terms of the CCAA. Vermejo Park Ranch has shown the ability to administer the CCAA and work effectively with cooperators to implement conservation commitments in the CCAA. The funding for implementation will come from several sources and is already in place. Vermejo Park Ranch will also have assistance from the Service, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, and Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife in determining the conservation priorities. Based on conservation measures described in the CCAA, the Service does not expect any circumstances to occur that would preclude Vermejo Park Ranch’s funding and implementation of the CCAA. Section 9 of the Act and its implementing regulations prohibit the ‘‘taking’’ of threatened or endangered species. However, under limited circumstances, we may issue permits to take listed wildlife species incidental to, and not for the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities.
