On 16.C 670a (a) (f) authorizes the Minister of Defence to implement a programme of conservation and restoration of natural resources on military installations. The law instructs the secretary of each military department to determine whether an Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan (INRMP) is appropriate for each facility. The Secretary prepares the INRMP in collaboration with the Minister of the Interior by acting by taking the capture of the Director of the Wildlife and Nature Service and the head of any appropriate national authority for fish and wildlife. The INRMP is prepared and implemented to take into account the mutual agreement of the parties with regard to the conservation, protection and management of fish and wild resources, which, where possible, ensures that a sufficient number of qualified natural resource management and natural resource and natural resource management staff are made available and responsible for the implementation of natural resources Title 16.
