BALD EAGLE AND GOLDEN EAGLE ELECTROCUTION PREVENTION IN-LIEU FEE PROGRAM

Bald Eagle And Golden Eagle Electrocution
Prevention In-lieu Fee Program

The Bald Eagle And Golden Eagle Electrocution Prevention In-lieu Fee Program (Eagle ILF Program) is authorized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to sell compensatory mitigation credits for Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles. The Eagle ILF Program is the only mitigation banking option available specific to eagles and authorized by USFWS to offset incidental take.

The objective of the Eagle ILF Program is to provide a program to offset eagle take with power pole retrofitting as mitigation specified in permits and other authorizations by the USFWS primarily through the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668–668d) by:

  • Providing technically advanced, standardized, and repeatable retrofitting measures for certain existing hazardous poles across USFWS Eagle Management Units.
  • Ensuring mitigation meets years of avoided loss required in eagle take permits.
  • Simplifying implementation of compensatory mitigation for both eagle take permittees and electric utilities.
  • Increasing efficiency for retrofitting poles for eagle mitigation.
  • Providing an effective and transparent accounting structure for collecting in-lieu fees, disbursing ILF Retrofitting Project funds, and reporting conservation outcomes.
  • Utilizing appropriate monitoring and reporting practices to provide data, accountability and transparency to the USFWS for use in eagle management, modeling, and recovery decision making.
  • Working in an efficient and transparent manner with the USFWS to implement Retrofitting Projects.
