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. Sincerely, bglms P.O.
