Permits provide a means to balance use and conservation of protected species.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues permits under various wildlife laws and treaties.  Permits enable the public and scientific communities to engage in legitimate wildlife-related activities that would otherwise be prohibited by law. 

Permits ensure that 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 activities to go forward.
