New Mexico Bulk Transmission Biological Resource Assessment(12-NM)
The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) preserves endangered or threatened wildlife in the state against any direct take under NMSA 17-2-41. State endangered and threatened species are listed in NMAC 19.33.6. Incidental takings are not within the scope of the statute. New Mexico law only requires consultation with the NMDGF for projects on State Game Commission land. However, developers are encouraged to voluntarily consult with NMDGF for all projects that may impact wildlife and ecosystems in New Mexico. NMDGF may conduct biological reviews for developers and provide comments or recommendations. After consultation, a developer is not bound to following any recommendations made by NMDGF.
