Federal law prohibits certain activities with endangered species unless a permit is obtained. Background The Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.; PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31693C 30605C 15974C 30596C 64738A 32538C 27453C 39618C Permit issuance date 10/19/2017 9/12/2017 10/19/2017 10/19/2017 10/12/2017 11/01/2017 10/31/17 11/6/2017 ESA), prohibits certain activities with endangered and threatened species unless the activities are specifically authorized by a Federal permit. The ESA and our implementing regulations in part 17 of title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) provide for the issuance of such permits and require that we invite public comment before issuing permits for activities involving endangered species. A permit granted by us under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA authorizes the permittee to conduct activities with U.S. 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) of the ESA 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. Applications Available for Review and Comment We invite local, State, Tribal, and Federal agencies and the public to comment on the following applications. Please refer to the permit number when you submit comments. Documents and other information the applicants have submitted with the applications are available for review, subject to the requirements of the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) and Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552). Permit Applications Proposed activities in the following permit requests are for the recovery and enhancement of propagation or survival of the species in the wild. E:\FR\FM\03JAN1.SGM 03JAN1
