What we do
Threatened and Endangered Species Investigations
The presence of state or federally protected threatened or endangered species can significantly affect the way a project is designed and implemented. EcolSciences routinely conducts background analyses and field surveys for protected species. EcolSciences' staff is skilled in the field methodologies and reporting requirements that characterize a rigorous field study. EcolSciences has implemented a number of the largest threatened and endangered species studies in New Jersey, some involving multi-year trapping, radio-tracking, and call-playback surveys. Several of EcolSciences' staff members have been officially recognized by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service as Qualified Bog Turtle Surveyors in multiple states.
EcolSciences has experience providing the following services:
- Assessing habitat suitability and reviewing exisiting records
- Preparing sampling protocols based on habitat suitability
- Conducting species-specific sampling procedures
- Negotiating with regulatory agencies based on sampling results
