bear cub.Wildlife management and protection are core services that we offer to our clients. We have written wildlife management and protection plans for a variety of government, private, and NGO entities. Our plans focus on scientifically defensible techniques that balance the needs of wildlife and of the project. We provide a broad range of services that include:

  • Habitat Conservation Plans (HCPs)
  • Wildlife Safe Harbor Plans
  • Management Plans (e.g., endangered species, deer, bear)
  • Habitat Restoration Plans (e.g., wetland, aquatic, marine, and terrestrial)
  • Bat Hibernacula Protection
  • Avian and Bat Protection Plans
  • Facilitation and Public Participation
  • Education and Training Program Development

Wildlife and protected species studies require both scientific and regulatory understanding of the particular species. Most federal or state protected species are either rare or are dependent on specific habitat requirements. Although survey techniques are typically prescribed by agencies, there are many times when new protocols must be developed. These need to be scientifically defensible because the presence or absence of those species has significant ramifications. Ultimately, the study protocol will depend on the scientific questions to be answered and the goals of the project. Our ecologists give the utmost attention to technical details, scientific rigor, and overall implications when preparing studies, reports, and manuscripts. Our terrestrial wildlife ecology services include:

  • Wildlife and Botanical Surveys and Inventories
  • Habitat Evaluation Procedure (HEP) Analysis
  • Habitat Assessment, Restoration and Preservation
  • GIS Analysis, Modeling and Mapping
  • Risk Assessment
  • Habitat Conservation Plans and Environmental Assessments
  • White Papers, Fact Sheets, and Technical Reports
  • Expert Testimony and Technical Support
