Permit inactivation

Science Center Objects

Bird Banding Laboratory (BBL) permits may be inactivated under a variety of circumstances. If a bander shows no activity under their permit for a period of three years, their permit may be inactivated for an indefinite period until they need to band birds.

If any permit holder is no longer able to band birds or does not need to band them, they may request that their permit be placed in inactive status. Banders who fail to comply with conditions of their permits, such as failing to regularly submit data or to account for bands issued to them, may have their permit placed in inactive status until they have resolved all unfulfilled permit requirements.
