Guide to Threatened and Endangered Species on Private Lands In Virginia

The intent of this publication is to clarify the requirements of federal law and state regulations that govern protection of threatened and endangered species as they pertain to private landowners in Virginia and to provide a clear course of action for natural resource professionals and landowners to take if they suspect threatened and endangered species are present. Where protected species are not present, management activities can proceed as planned, keeping in mind that there may be other requirements that must be met, in addition to complying with endangered species laws. If you have any questions about the process, please contact the VDGIF or VDCR/NHP.
