Endangered Species Permits

Contents of an HCP

The contents of an HCP are defined in Section 10 as well. In general, they include:

  1. An assessment of impacts likely to result from the proposed taking of one or more federally listed species.

  2. Measures the permit applicant will undertake to monitor, minimize, and mitigate for such impacts; the funding that will be made available to implement such measures; and the procedures to deal with unforeseen or extraordinary circumstances.

  3. Alternative actions to the taking that the applicant analyzed, and the reasons why the applicant did not adopt such alternatives.

  4. Additional measures that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service may require as necessary or appropriate.
