Ohio's Endangered Species Consultation Conference

Ohio's Endangered Species Consultation Conference was held on Friday, November 4, 2005, 8am-3pm. This conference was sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Transportation, and focused on conducting consultation on Federally listed species, as required under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The staff at the Ohio Field Office was very pleased with the participation of agencies, consultants, and developers who work on endangered species issues in Ohio. Over 200 registered to attend the Conference.

The Endangered Species Act requires Federal agencies to ensure that their actions do not jeopardize the continued existence of federally listed species. If a project may affect a federally listed species, consultation under Section 7 of the Act is required. This conference focused on understanding the basics of Section 7 consultation, examining consultation requirements for species in Ohio, such as the Indiana bat, and providing a forum for questions about the consultation process.

We are including most of the presentations and pertinent resouce material for your use on this web page. If you have any questions, please e-mail Megan Seymour with your Name, Affiliation, Address, Phone, Fax.
