 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.
