Habitat Conservation Plans [DEC19] ON DEMAND

Suppose you want to build a new hotel on the perfect plot of land on the outskirts of town. After investigation of the site you learn to your dismay that there are several federally listed species that would be negatively affected by your development.  You find out that if you were hurt or harass any animal, it would count as a take, which is illegal.  In order to proceed with your project, you will need to acquire an incidental take permit, which requires the preparation of a habitat conservation plan.
