We specialize in surveying and monitoring populations of birds, bats and other species for for-profit and not-for-profit organizations – with the primary goal of achieving regulatory compliance while simultaneously helping sustain viable populations.
- We specialize in conducting biological surveys at sites that are logistically challenging.
- We are as passionate about surveying species as we are about communicating scientific results to all stakeholders.
Collectively, our team has in excess of 100 years cumulative experience in helping clients to reduce potentially adverse environmental impacts and to achieve regulatory compliance. We have superb strategic skills in competing for bids, expediting environmental permits, avoiding costly environmental litigation and successfully applying cost-effective, state-of-the-art hardware and software techniques.
