Protected Species Surveys


Protected Species Surveys

ABR has a team of species experts with experience on an array of protected species—from bats to fish, birds to whales. We have conducted the full range of pre-to-post impact studies, from baseline surveys and inventories to post-development disturbance or perturbation studies. Specific experience includes:

  • aerial, boat, and ground surveys for protected species
  • radar surveys for protected species
  • federally listed threatened, endangered, and candidate species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA)
  • raptors protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act
  • birds and their nests protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
  • marine mammal species protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA)
  • providing Protected Species Observers to meet MMPA and ESA requirements
  • providing data and study results for species listing and de-listing decisions
  • expert testimony
