Protocols

 

 

We have specific Survey Protocols for some of the listed species in the Mountain-Prairie Region which should be followed when a permittee wants to establish presence or absence of the species. Please check to see if your species of interest have a survey protocol available. Survey protocols may be updated at any time, so please be sure to check back occasionally. In most cases you will still need a recovery permit before implementing a survey protocol.
