Statewide permit and authorization for grassland management may result in the incidental take of rare frog


Well-known member
MADISON -- The Department of Natural Resources proposes to revise the Broad Incidental Take Permit and Authorization for Grassland and Savanna Management in Wisconsin. The permit and authorization will allow for the "incidental taking" of a rare frog that may occur as a result of grassland and savanna management activities in Wisconsin. Incidental take refers to the unintentional loss of individual endangered or threatened animals or plants that does not put the overall population of the species at risk. - - The Broad Incidental Take Authorization for Grassland and Savanna Management was originally approved in 2000 and has since been revised several times. This revision will create a protocol for the state endangered Blanchard's cricket frog (Acris blanchardi).
