SUPs enable the public to engage in legitimate wildlife-related activities and ensure that such activities are carried out in a manner that safeguards wildlife. Additionally, some permits promote conservation efforts by authorizing scientific research, generating data, or allowing wildlife management and rehabilitation activates to go forward.
The Washita National Wildlife Refuge issues SUPs on a case-by-case basis. Anyone interested in obtaining one should contact the refuge.
Additional permits are handled by permitting programs in International Affairs (Management Authority), Endangered Species, Law Enforcement, and Migratory Birds.
Visit the National Wildlife Refuge System Web site for Special Use Permits.
