Agency Information Collection Activities; Federal Fish and Wildlife Permit Applications and Reports-Migratory Birds
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, on May 17, 2022, we, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, published a notice announcing that we are proposing to renew an existing information collection with revisions. The notice opened a public comment period, which closed on July 18, 2022. Because we have additional proposed changes, we are now republishing the notice and reopening the comment period.
Marine Mammal Protection Act; Receipt of Permit Applications
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), invite the public to comment on applications to conduct certain activities with foreign species that the Service has jurisdiction under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). With some exceptions, the MMPA prohibits activities with listed species unless Federal authorization is issued that allows such activities. The MMPA also requires that we invite public comment before issuing permits for any activity otherwise prohibited by the MMPA with respect to any endangered species or marine mammals.
