This notice advises the public of the Fish and Wildlife Service's development of a golden eagle management plan and invites public comment. The plan is needed to : (1) identify golden eagle needs; and (2) guide Service management and research efforts for golden eagles. The intended effect of the plan is to protect and conserve golden eagle populations while facilitating balanced development of the Nation's natural resources and the resolution of eagle/man conflicts.
Material in Full:
The Fish and Wildlife Service has responsibilities for the conservation and management of golden eagles under several legislated authorities including, but not limited to, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Bald Eagle Protection Act, and the Animal Damage Control Act of 1931. The plan develops Service goals and strategies for fulfilling its responsibilities under these authorities.
The plan covers monitoring the population, reducing man-caused mortality, reducing conflicts with energy development, and resolving depredation problems. Additionally, a number of areas of needed research are addressed in the plan including the development of a population model, synthesis of population data, impacts of energy development on eagle populations and appropriate mitigation measures, as well as new methods for resolving depredation conflicts.
