RE: Draft Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance
Public Notice Date: February 9, 2011
To Whom It May Concern:
The professional staff of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has
reviewed the above referenced Public Notice. Overall the LDWF concurs with this document
and only suggests that language be incorporated that directs developers to contact the states'
Natural Heritage Programs during the early planning stages of the project. The state Natural
Heritage Programs typically maintain a database of rare, threatened, and endangered species and
thus would likely be able to assist with proper site determination.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries appreciates the opportunity to review and
provide recommendations to you regarding the Draft Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance. Please
do not hesitate to contact Natural Heritage biologist Beau Gregory at 225-765-2820 should you
need further assistance.
