Permits for Non-native Species or Import and Export
of Non-native and Native Species (dated 2002)

Hybrids of animals or plants bred or propagated in captivity that
result from one listed parent and one non-listed parent are exempt from the requirements of the Act. All other hybrids that
involve crosses of listed species or subspecies are covered by the Act. Where an animal or plant is listed at the species level,
every member of that species is protected under the Act, whether
the specimen is identifiable as a member of a particular
subspecies, and whether the animal or plant has parents of two different subspecies. For example, tigers are listed at the species level, so offspring of two different subspecies of tigers are protected by the Act. The Service considers the intentional hybridization of captive endangered or threatened
species as contrary to the purposes of the Act, unless current science shows that cross breeding is necessary to keep genetically viable populations. It is recommended that breeding records be maintained to show parentage andhybrid status. Other laws such as the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) and CITES consider hybrids protected.
