Endangered Species; Recovery Permit Application, 35970-35971 [2015-15396]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 35970 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 120 / Tuesday, June 23, 2015 / Notices authorized to allow public uses on lands of the National Wildlife Refuge System, including hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, and environmental education and interpretation, and other visitor uses, when we find that the activities are compatible and appropriate with the purpose or purposes for which the refuges were established. We collect information on hunters and anglers and other visitors to help us protect refuge resources and administer and evaluate the success of visitor programs. Because of high demand and limited resources, we often provide visitor opportunities by permit, based on dates, locations, or type of public use. We may not allow all opportunities on all refuges, and harvest information differs for each refuge. We use FWS Form 3–2405 (Self-Clearing Check-In Permit) to collect this information. Not all refuges will use the form, and some refuges may collect the information in a nonform format. We collect: • Information on the visitor (name, address, and contact information). We use this information to identify the visitor or driver/passengers of a vehicle while on the refuge. Having this information readily available is critical in a search and rescue situation. We do not maintain or record this information. • Information on whether or not hunters/anglers were successful (number and type of harvest/caught). • Purpose of visit (hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, wildlife photography, auto touring, birding, hiking, boating/canoeing, visitor center, special event, environmental education class, volunteering, other recreation). • Date of visit. The above information is a vital tool in meeting refuge objectives and maintaining quality visitor experiences. It will help us: • Administer and monitor visitor programs and facilities on refuges. • Distribute visitor permits to ensure safety of visitors. • Ensure a quality visitor experience. • Minimize resource disturbance, manage healthy game populations, and ensure the protection of fish and wildlife species. • Assist in Statewide wildlife management and enforcement and develop reliable estimates of the number of all game fish and wildlife. • Determine facility and program needs and budgets.

This notice identifies an information collection activity that the Office of Financial Management will submit to OMB for approval for the Department and its bureaus to continue to collect information from proposed donors relative to their relationship(s) with the Department. The Department and its individual bureaus have gift acceptance authorities. In support of the variety of donation authorities in the Department and increasing numbers of donations, it is the policy of the Department to ask those proposing to donate gifts valued at $25,000 or more to provide information regarding their relationship with the Department. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that the acceptance of a gift does not create legal or ethical issues for the Department, its bureaus, or potential donors. The information will be gathered through the use of a form that collects information relevant to the acceptability of the proposed donation in conformance with the Department’s donations policy. The form is completed and certified by the prospective donor then submitted to the Department or its bureau for review.
