Abstract: The Captive Wildlife Safety Act (CWSA; Pub. L. 108–191, 16 U.S.C. 3371 note, and 16 U.S.C. 3372 note) amended the Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371 et seq.; 18 U.S.C. 42–43) by making it illegal to import, export, buy, sell, transport, receive, or acquire, in interstate or foreign commerce, live lions, tigers, leopards, snow leopards, clouded leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, or cougars, or any hybrid combination of any of these species, unless certain exceptions are met. The CWSA was signed into law in 2003, and enforcement began on September 17, 2007. There are several exemptions to the prohibitions of the CWSA, including accredited wildlife sanctuaries. There is no requirement for wildlife sanctuaries to submit applications to qualify for the accredited wildlife sanctuary exemption. Wildlife sanctuaries themselves will determine if they qualify. As a matter of routine, we do not inspect or follow up on wildlife sanctuaries unless we have cause for concern. To qualify, they must meet all of the following criteria: • Obtain approval by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(a) of the IRS Code of 1986 (Pub. L. 99–514), which is described in sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of that code. • Do not engage in commercial trade in the prohibited wildlife species, including offspring, parts, and products. • Do not propagate the prohibited wildlife species. • Allow no direct contact between the public and the prohibited wildlife species. The basis for this information collection is the recordkeeping requirement that we place on accredited wildlife sanctuaries. We require accredited wildlife sanctuaries to maintain complete and accurate records of any possession, transportation, acquisition, disposition, importation, or exportation of the prohibited wildlife species as defined in the CWSA (see title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at part 14, subpart K). Records must be up to date and include: (1) Names and addresses of persons to or from whom any prohibited wildlife species has been acquired, imported, exported, purchased, sold, or otherwise transferred; and (2) dates of these PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 transactions. Accredited wildlife sanctuaries must: • Maintain these records for 5 years. • Make these records accessible to Service officials for inspection at reasonable hours. • Copy these records for Service officials, if requested. Title of Collection: Captive Wildlife Safety Act, 50 CFR 14.250–14.255. OMB Control Number: 1018–0129. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Accredited wildlife sanctuaries. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 750. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 750. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 1 hour. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 750. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: Ongoing. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $300. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Madonna Baucum, Information Collection Clearance Officer, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
