A Film Permit is required for commercial filming on National Wildlife Refuges. A permit will not be required for personal, noncommercial filming and photography activities or news coverage. The Film Permit will help insure compatibility with refuge purposes, public use, ongoing research, or to protect refuge resources.
Commercial filming will not be permitted if it is determined if:
*There is likelihood of wildlife disturbance.
*There would be an unreasonable disruption of the public’s use
and enjoyment of the site (beyond short-term interruptions).
*The activity poses a health or safety risk to the public.
