Survey & Inventory


Wildlife Survey

ABR scientists have extensive experience quantifying the distribution and abundance of wildlife in terrestrial, marine, and aerial environments. For decades our scientists have worked safely in arctic conditions, performing a broad suite of studies, from baseline surveys for terrestrial and aquatic wildlife to focused monitoring of threatened and endangered species. Our specific areas of expertise include:

  • design and analysis of complex field studies
  • cutting-edge sampling methods for wildlife monitoring
  • line-transect sampling and analytical methodologies
  • avian point-count surveys for baseline conditions, population monitoring, and restoration efforts
  • long-term population-monitoring surveys
  • Bald and Golden eagle surveys for wind-energy projects
  • raptor nesting and productivity surveys
  • aerial surveys for caribou, moose, bears, fox dens, seals, sea otters, seabirds, passerines, shorebirds, and waterfowl
  • site-characterization surveys for wildlife and sensitive habitats at wind and solar projects
  • nocturnal radar and visual surveys for birds
  • bat acoustic-monitoring surveys
