Northern Long-Eared Bat Presentation

The northern long-eared bat was listed as federally threatened last April with an interim 4 (d) rule that allows take of the species for forest management, rights-of-ways for transportation and transmission lines and activities removing trees on one acre or less. As a result of the listing, Section 7 consultation (under the Endangered Species Act) is required for federally permitted or funded projects. Given the wide range of the species, diverse habitat and scarce information on the current distribution, determining whether a project may impact the species has been challenging. Additionally, the 4(d) rule has created some confusion in its application and implementation.

The New England Field Office has been working to clarify whether projects may impact the northern long-eared bat in this region and to identify conservation measures to avoid effects. Susi von Oettingen from the New England Field Office presented a synopsis of the listing and the 4(d) rule, and the Section 7 consultation process at the NHANRS 2015 Fall Quarterly Meeting, held 9/24/2015.  If you missed it, view the PowerPoint presentation through the link below.

NHANRS Wetland Buffer Workgroup Page

The New Hampshire Association of Natural Resource Scientists Legislative Committee has been active in the legislative review of 2015 HB 349 by the Resources, Recreation and Development Committee.  HB 349 was conceived to implement the recommendations of the Land Use Commission (2010) as they relate to wetland buffers and the assessment of indirect impacts to wetlands. NHANRS offered to host a science based workgroup to accomplish this goal and has established the Wetland Buffer Scientific Workgroup 

Read more about this Workgroup and related documents at our new Wetland Buffer Scientific Workgroup Page.
