KDWPT Action Permit Program
The Kansas Nongame and Endangered Species Conservation Act places the responsibility for identifying and undertaking appropriate conservation measures for threatened and endangered wildlife species directly upon the Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. Although few in number, with their populations in jeopardy, these species constitute an important part of Kansas' wildlife heritage and serve as important barometers to the overall quality of life being enjoyed by all Kansans. In order to carry out this responsibility, it has been necessary for the department to implement protective regulations. Kansas Administrative Regulations provide protection for critical habitats that will be affected by proposed actions such as road and bridge construction, flood control structures, pipeline installation, etc. It is necessary for sponsors of any proposed action covered by this regulation to be aware of its requirements.
