Species Trapping and Relocating

If the minimum avoidance zone cannot be maintained and the agency-approved biologist believes activities will disturb or destroy habitat (e.g., collapse burrows) or may otherwise adversely affect these special-status mammal species, then an agency-approved biologist may be required to implement a trap and release program at the agency’s discretion. Project-specific guidance on
trapping, temporary holding, release location, and release method will be required by the agency prior to the start of trapping.
