The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced that it will codify its interpretation of the MBTA as prohibiting incidental take and propose a system of regulations to authorize the incidental take of migratory birds under prescribed conditions.

The agency will hold three public webinars to share information about the rule-making process: 

Thursday, November 4 at 12 p.m. eastern 

Monday, November 8 at 3 p.m. eastern 

Wednesday, November 10 at 1 p.m. eastern 

All three can be accessed at the following Zoom link: zoomgov.com/j/1616455432?pwd=Y1p2TGxhNDdpWjhGeUFJQ2ZpUlgzdz09 (Meeting ID: 161 645 5432 Passcode: 015695).
