SUMMARY: Jkt 238001 The Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) makes it unlawful to import or export fish, wildlife, or plants without filing a declaration or report deemed necessary for enforcing the Act or upholding the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(e)). With a few exceptions, businesses, individuals, or government agencies importing into or exporting from the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife product must complete and submit to the Service an FWS Form 3– PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife). This form as well as FWS Form 3–177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions for completion are available for electronic submission at https:// edecs.fws.gov. These forms are also available in fillable format at http:// www.fws.gov/forms/. The information that we collect is unique to each wildlife shipment and enables us to: • Accurately inspect the contents of the shipment; • Enforce any regulations that pertain to the fish, wildlife, or wildlife products contained in the shipment; and • Maintain records of the importation and exportation of these commodities. Businesses or individuals must file FWS Forms 3–177 and 3–177a with us at the time and port where they request clearance of the import or export of wildlife or wildlife products. Our regulations allow for certain species of wildlife to be imported or exported between the United States and Canada or Mexico at U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports, even though our wildlife inspectors may not be present. In these instances, importers and exporters may file the forms with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. We collect the following information: (1) Name of the importer or exporter and broker. (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife. (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required). (4) Description, quantity, and value of the fish or wildlife. (5) Natural country of origin of the fish or wildlife. In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill of lading number, the location of the shipment containing the fish or wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1
