    Project planning

    The Ecological Services Program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works collaboratively with other federal agencies, industries, and other stakeholders to achieve infrastructure development goals in ways that are sustainable and compatible with the conservation of fish, wildlife, and their habitats. Field biologists assist project proponents, planners, and personnel in developing plans that conserve, restore, or enhance plant and animal species. Service biologists work under multiple authorities, including the Endangered Species Act (ESA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Federal Power Act, Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.  Learn more...

    Louisiana Endangered Species Act (ESA) project review and guidance for other federal trust resources

    Information for Planning and Consultation (IPaC) is a project planning tool which streamlines the USFWS environmental review process. You will be able to determine whether any threatened or endangered species or their critical habitats may exist within your project area and if your proposed action may affect (potential for negative impacts to federally listed species or critical habitat, if applicable) them. If your completed T&E review indicates a “no effect” (no positive or negative impacts to federally listed species or critical habitat, if applicable) to listed species, print this report for your files.  Learn more...
