The Wildlife Resources Section of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources has filed legislative rule changes with the Secretary of State’s office, according to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the Division’s Wildlife Resources Section.

The proposed rule changes will be open for review and written comment until 3:30 p.m. on July 5, 2007. The availability of the proposed rule changes will be advertised in the State Register. In addition, the proposed rule changes will be available for review at each DNR district office, the Elkins office and the Charleston office. Individuals interested in reviewing the proposed rule changes should contact the Wildlife Resources Section staff at these offices.

Written comments may be submitted to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief, Wildlife Resources Section, Capitol Complex, Building 3, Room 842, Charleston, WV 25305.

Wildlife Scientific Collection Permit

Scientific Collecting Permits are required by individuals wishing to collect or handle wildlife in West Virginia for scientific purposes. This legislation allows the WVDNR to monitor what wildlife is being affected by collecting, and to stipulate methodologies to be used by the permit holder to prevent over-collection of or unnecessary harm to wildlife in the state. An annual fee will be charged to consultants and out-of-state researchers in order to off-set the cost of issuing the permits.
