The Incidental Take working group report and final resources will be available september 2019
The Incidental Take Working Group was created in September 2018 with two charges: 1) Work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop and communicate about Best Management Practices for avoiding incidental take of migratory birds, and 2) Develop model language, or guiding principles for model legislation, for states wishing to develop statutes or rules addressing incidental take of migratory birds.
The Working Group had a one-year charge and was disbanded in September 2019, after the acceptance of the group's final report.
