The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues permits under various wildlife law and
treaties at a number of offices throughout the country. Permits enable the public
to engage in legitimate wildlife-related activities that would otherwise be prohibited
by law. Service permit programs ensure that such 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 activates to go forward.
