Abstract: Section 10(j) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA, 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to establish experimental populations of endangered or threatened species. Because the ESA protects individuals of experimental populations, the information we collect is important for monitoring the success of reintroduction and recovery efforts. This is a nonform collection (meaning there is no designated form associated with this collection). Regulations at 50 CFR 17.84 contain information collection requirements for experimental populations of vertebrate endangered and threatened species. These E:\FR\FM\04FEN1.SGM 04FEN1 6213 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 23 / Tuesday, February 4, 2020 / Notices regulations identify and describe the three categories of information we collect, which includes: (1) General take or removal. ‘‘Take’’ is defined by the ESA as ‘‘[to] harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct.’’ In this information collection, take most commonly is considered to be in the form of human-related mortality, including: a. Unintentional taking incidental to otherwise lawful activities (e.g., highway mortalities); b. Animal husbandry actions authorized to manage the population (e.g., translocation or providing aid to sick, injured, or orphaned individuals); c. Take in defense of human life; d. Take related to defense of property (if authorized); or e. Take in the form of authorized harassment. (2) Depredation-related take. Involves take for management purposes of documented livestock depredation, and may include authorized harassment or authorized lethal take of experimental population animals in the act of attacking livestock. See 50 CFR 17.84 for specific provisions of harassment for each species within this section. The information that we collect includes: • Name, address, and phone number of reporting party, • Species involved, • Type of incident, • Quantity of take, • Location and time of the reported incident, and • Description of the circumstances related to the incident. (3) Specimen collection, recovery, or reporting of dead individuals. This information documents incidental or authorized scientific collection. Most of the information collected addresses the reporting of sightings of experimental population animals or the inadvertent discovery of an injured or dead individual. Service recovery specialists use this information to determine the success of Annual number of respondents Requirement reintroductions in relation to established recovery plan goals for the experimental populations of vertebrate endangered and threatened species involved. In addition, this information helps us to assess the effectiveness of control activities in order to develop better means to reduce problems with livestock for those species where depredation is a problem.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 (PRA), we provide the general public and other Federal 
agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and 
continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact 
of our information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information 
collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired 
format.
    We are soliciting comments on the proposed information collection 
request (ICR) that is described below. We are especially interested in 
public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection 
necessary to the proper functions of the Service; (2) will this 
information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the 
estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Service enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and

    Abstract: Section 10(j) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as 
amended (ESA, 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the 
Interior to establish experimental populations of endangered or 
threatened species. Because the ESA protects individuals of 
experimental populations, the information we collect is important for 
monitoring the success of reintroduction and recovery efforts. This is 
a nonform collection (meaning there is no designated form associated 
with this collection). Regulations at 50 CFR 17.84 contain information 
collection requirements for experimental populations of vertebrate 
endangered and threatened species. These

[[Page 6213]]

regulations identify and describe the three categories of information 
we collect, which includes:
    (1) General take or removal. ``Take'' is defined by the ESA as 
``[to] harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, 
or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct.'' In this 
information collection, take most commonly is considered to be in the 
form of human-related mortality, including:
    a. Unintentional taking incidental to otherwise lawful activities 
(e.g., highway mortalities);
    b. Animal husbandry actions authorized to manage the population 
(e.g., translocation or providing aid to sick, injured, or orphaned 
individuals);
    c. Take in defense of human life;
    d. Take related to defense of property (if authorized); or
    e. Take in the form of authorized harassment.
    (2) Depredation-related take. Involves take for management purposes 
of documented livestock depredation, and may include authorized 
harassment or authorized lethal take of experimental population animals 
in the act of attacking livestock. See 50 CFR 17.84 for specific 
provisions of harassment for each species within this section.
    The information that we collect includes:
 Name, address, and phone number of reporting party,
 Species involved,
 Type of incident,
 Quantity of take,
 Location and time of the reported incident, and
 Description of the circumstances related to the incident.
    (3) Specimen collection, recovery, or reporting of dead 
individuals. This information documents incidental or authorized 
scientific collection. Most of the information collected addresses the 
reporting of sightings of experimental population animals or the 
inadvertent discovery of an injured or dead individual.
    Service recovery specialists use this information to determine the 
success of reintroductions in relation to established recovery plan 
goals for the experimental populations of vertebrate endangered and 
threatened species involved. In addition, this information helps us to 
assess the effectiveness of control activities in order to develop 
better means to reduce problems with livestock for those species where 
depredation is a problem.
