Subject 391-4-10 PROTECTION OF ENDANGERED, THREATENED, RARE, OR UNUSUAL SPECIES

Rule 391-4-10-.01 Purpose

The purpose of these rules and regulations is to establish the organizational structure and administrative procedures to be followed in the protection of endangered species of plant and animal life. The Department of Natural Resources is authorized by the Wildflower Preservation Act of 1973 (Ga. Laws 1973, p. 333, et seq.), the Endangered Wildlife Act of 1973 (Ga. Laws 1973, p. 932, et seq.), the laws relating to game and fish (Ga. Laws 1955, p. 483, et seq.) as amended, in particular by (Ga. Laws 1968, p. 497, et seq.) and other laws administered by the Department of Natural Resources, to promulgate rules and regulations for the protection of designated species. The Department of Natural Resources is required by the Endangered Wildlife Act of 1973 and the Wildflower Preservation Act of 1973 to designate all plant and animal species indigenous to the state which are determined by the Department to be "rare", "unusual", or in "danger of extinction". Such species are then "protected species" and subject to the provisions of the above-cited laws and the rules and regulations of the Department of Natural Resources. The Department is required to review periodically its "protected species" list and to make additions or deletions when appropriate.

Rule 391-4-10-.02 Definitions

All terms used in these rules and regulations shall be interpreted in accordance with the definitions as set forth in the Acts or as otherwise herein defined.

(a) The "Acts" as used in these rules refer to the "Wildfower Preservation Act of 1973", the "Endangered Wildlife Act of 1973", and other laws relating to game and fish.
(b) "Department" means the Department of Natural Resorces.
(c) "Person" means any natural person, firm, corporation, partnership, proprietorship, local government of the state, or other legal entity.
(d) "Protected species" means those species of plants and animal life which the Department shall have designated as such and has made subject to the protection of these Acts. Protected species shall be interpreted to include those classified as follows:
1. "Endangered species" means any resident species which is in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, or one which is designated as endangered under the provisions of the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 ( P.L. 93-205 ).
2. "Threatened species" means any resident species which is likely to become an endangered species within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of its range or one that is designated as threatened under the provisions of the Federal Endangered Species Act of 1973 ( P.L. 93-205 ).
3. "Rare species" means any resident species which, although not presently endangered or threatened as previously defined, should be protected because of its scarcity.
4. "Unusual species" means any resident species which exhibits special or unique features and because of these features deserves special consideration in its continued survival in the State.
(e) "Public lands" means all those lands within this state which are owned by the State of Georgia.
(f) "Resident species" means any species, sub-species or variety of plant or animal life that is genetically, morphologically, ecologically, or geographically distinct, and which interbreeds freely with its kind at maturity, and which exists in this state, including its waters, in the wild during any part of its life.
(g) "Status Undetermined species" means a resident species which is not afforded protection under these rules and regulations, but should additional research show the need for protection these or any other species may be moved to the protected category.

Rule 391-4-10-.03 Determination of Protected Species

(1) Criteria. The criteria for the determination as to whether any resident species is an endangered, threatened, rare, or unusual species are as follows:
(a) The present or threatened destruction, modification or curtailment of its habitat.
(b) Overutilization for commercial, sporting, scientific, or educational purposes.
(c) Disease or predation.
(d) The inadequacy of existing regulatory mechanisms.
(e) Other natural or man-made factors affecting its continued existence.
(2) Procedures. General procedures for modifying the state "protected species" list are as follows:
(a) Any member of the public may nominate a species for consideration. An application for nomination, in the form prescribed by the Department, must be submitted to the Department with all supporting data.
(b) If the Department determines that review is warranted, additional data is solicited from all relevant sources and notice of the nomination is published in the Department news release.
(c) All available scientific and commercial data is evaluated by the Department and tentative determination is made regarding the status of the nominated species.
(d) If the nominated species is determined by the Department not to warrant review or not to be endangered, threatened, rare or unusual, the person making the nomination is notified in writing of such determination.
(e) If the nominated species is tentatively determined by the Department to be endangered, threatened, rare, or unusual, public notice is given by publishing the proposal in the Department news release and by any other method required by the Georgia Administrative Procedures Act (Ga. Laws, p. 338 et seq.) as amended. The Department shall also distribute a public notice to all persons who have requested to be placed on the mailing list. Such request shall be made in writing and shall be renewed in December of each year. Failure to renew the request shall result in the removal of such name from the mailing list.
(f) A minimum of 20 days is allowed for public comment, during which time a public hearing may be requested pursuant to the Georgia Administrative Procedure Act.
(g) The Department considers public comment and, if necessary, compiles and analyzes additional data.
(h) The Department will submit its recommendation to the Board of Natural Resources no later than one year after the initial nomination of the species.
(i) The Board will then determine appropriate classification of nominated species by either adopting, modifying and adopting, or rejecting the submitted classification.
(3) General Procedures for deleting a species from the state "protected species" list are as follows:
(a) Any member of the public, or the Department on its own initiative, may propose that a protected species be deleted from the state protected species list.
(b) If the Department determines that review of such proposed deletion is warranted, additional data is solicited from all relevant sources and notice of the proposed deletion is published in the Department news release.
(c) All available scientific and commercial data is evaluated by the Department and tentative determination is made regarding the status of the species proposed for deletion.
(d) If the species proposed for deletion is determined by the Department not to warrant review the person making the nomination is notified in writing of such determination.
(e) If a species proposed for deletion has been tentatively determined by the Department as appropriate for deletion from the list as endangered, threatened, rare, or unusual, public notice is given by publishing the proposal in the Department news release and by any other method required by the Georgia Administrative Procedures Act as amended. The Department shall also distribute a public notice to all persons who have requested to be placed on the mailing list. Such request shall be made in writing and shall be renewed in December of each year. Failure to renew the request shall result in the removal of such name from the mailing list.
(f) A minimum of 20 days is allowed for public comment, during which time a public hearing may be requested pursuant to the Georgia Administrative Procedure Act.
(g) The Department considers public comment and, if necessary, compiles and analyzes additional data.
(h) The Department will submit its recommendation to the Board of Natural Resources no later than one year after the initial proposal for deletion of the species.
(i) The Board will then determine whether the species proposed for deletion should be deleted or its current classification modified.

Rule 391-4-10-.04 Land Acquisition

Rule 391-4-10-.07 Exceptions
