Threatened & Endangered Species
Biological investigations are conducted to identify and characterize the existing habitats within your project area prior to any proposed development to determine the types and acreages of suitable habitat present for fish and wildlife resources. Site information acquired from these surveys is used to evaluate the condition and quality of habitats from which we provide determination of potential affect or impacts on these resources. Site surveys also provide you with the baseline information relative to any federally or state-listed threatened & endangered (T&E) species (including candidate species) that may be present in or migrate through the project area. Field surveys are conducted to identify and describe the observed habitat potentially affected by the proposed project and determine if any wildlife resources, especially threatened, endangered or candidate species or their habitat is present that could be affected.
