SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 9 of the Act and Federal Regulation 
prohibits the ``take'' of wildlife species listed as threatened or 
endangered species. Under the Act, the term ``take'' means to harass, 
harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect 
listed wildlife, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. The 
Service may, under limited circumstances, issue permits to authorize 
incidental take, i.e. that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, 
the carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing 
permits for endangered species are at 50 CFR 17.22.
