Maine’s Natural Resources Protection Act requires the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife to map significant wildlife habitat, including the kind that supports wading birds and waterfowl. The information is used by the Department of Environmental Protection in evaluating permits and by municipalities in crafting shore land zoning ordinances; it is essential to ensuring that important wildlife habitats are adequately protected. Because the habitat hasn’t been mapped, some towns are creating ordinances using information that is 30 years old. LD #1234 is a directive from the Legislature tothe department to fulfill its obligation using the rulemaking process.
