In Washington, it is unlawful to take wildlife from the wild without permission from the [[Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife]] (WDFW). The WDFW issues Live Wildlife Taking Permits under [[WAC - 232-12-064 Live Wildlife-Taking from the wild | WAC 232-12-064]]. In addition, developers proposing projects located on or affecting land within a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) must adhere to requirements of [[Washington State Department of Natural Resources]] (WSDNR) HCP Compliance.
Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==12-WA-a.1 – Consult Regarding Potential Impacts on Fish and Wildlife or lands within a HCP==
If the developer determines that the project may impact fish and wildlife in the area, then they should immediately consult with the WDFW to identify any permits that may be necessary.
The WDFW will consider the project location and wildlife in the area to determine if the impacts to wildlife rise to the level which requires a permit. If the WDFW determines that the project will not have a sufficient impact on wildlife, then a permit is not required and the project may continue.
==12-WA-a.2 to 12-WA-a.3 Is the Project Located on Lands within a HCP?==
As an additional threshold consideration, developers proposing projects located on or affecting lands within a HCP must notify the WSDNR and adhere to compliance requirements. The HCP compliance process is fully described in <span class="btn btn-rapid btn-state">[[RAPID/Roadmap/12-WA-b|State Trust Lands Habitat Conservation Plan Compliance: <br>12-WA-b]]</span>
==12-WA-a.4 – Will the Project Impact a Listed Species?==
Washington has developed a list of species native to Washington which are endangered, threatened, or sensitive. If a project will impact a protected species, then the developer will be required to work with the WDFW to address impact issues. The developer may not take wildlife listed as a protected species.
Endangered species are listed in [[WAC - 232-12-064 Live Wildlife-Taking from the wild |WAC 232-12-014]]. State endangered, threatened, and sensitive species are all listed on the [[Washington State Species of Concern Lists|WDFW website]], the list also includes candidates for such classifications.
==12-WA-a.5 to 12-WA-a.6 – Request Permit to Take Wildlife==
The developer must contact the WDFW to request a permit to remove the wildlife from the project area. The WDFW will consider any request for a permit by investigating the project area and any impacted wildlife.
==12-WA-a.7 to 12-WA-a.9 – Does WDFW Grant a Permit?==
The WDFW may approve or deny a permit to take wildlife from the project area. If the WDFW refuses to issue a permit, then the developer should consider a different project location.
==12-WA-a.10 – Consult with Species Specialist==
If the WDFW determines that the project will negatively impact a species listed as endangered, threatened, or sensitive, the WDFW will consult with a specialist on the species to determine whether it can be removed from the location.
==12-WA-a.11 to 12-WA-a.12 – Can the Listed Species be Removed?==
If the species specialist and WDFW determine that the protected species can be effectively removed from the project area without significant impact, then they will conduct the removal. If the WDFW and specialist determine that the protected species cannot be effectively removed, then the developer should consider a different project location.
