Didn't know where to post this so I just posted it in the Young Reefing Forum. My goal has always been to do some sort of Utilitarianism "program" to help out special concern/endangered/threatened species and finally decided to kick my butt into gear. As far as I see there are two options I have. I can either go for a Novice Wildlife Rehabilitation Permit or an Endangered Species: to enhance propagation or survival of the species--Permit. So does anyone have one of these permits that would be able to tell me what applying for these is like? I know the WR Permit requires to separate exams and the ES Permit for the propagation or survival of the species requires an extensive document talking about a page-full of things. I've looked at the requirements for each so I know they are going to be extremely difficult to obtain but I have 2 specific species I have in mind that I want to try and start with that stay a decent size and one of which doesn't move around much. -Pirate Perch and -Ozark Minnow both of which are right within Dakota County.
