Endangered Species Surveys

We conduct surveys for Federally endangered, threatened, candidate and State listed species throughout the Southeastern US.  Species include, but not limited to: bats (habitat assessments and acoustic surveys), red-cockaded woodpecker, wood stork, bald eagle, gopher tortoise, frosted and reticulated flatwoods salamander (habitat assessment), all plant species.

Biological Assessments

Using the results of the surveys, we will complete a Biological Assessment for consultation with the USFWS.

Section 7 Consultation

With the surveys results and Biological Assessment, we will assist you with your Interagency Consultation (i.e., Section 7).   

Project Example - Solar Site Project

We conducted an on-site survey for the Gopher Tortoise (a State listed species) on a proposed solar site in GA.  Active Gopher Tortoise burrows were identified, monitored, and a plan was implemented to relocate the tortoise.

Project Example - BMW

We conducted an on-site survey for Federally endangered and threatened species (including dwarf-flowered heartleaf and acoustic surveys for the Northern long-eared bat) and completed the associated biological assessment for the USFWS on an approximately 100 acre site in Spartanburg County, SC. This site became the BMW car manufacturing site.

Project Example - Volvo

 Led a team of two and conducted an on-site survey for Federally endangered and threatened species and completed the associated biological assessment for the USFWS on a 1,000+ acre site near Ridgeville, Dorchester County, SC.  This site became the Volvo car manufacturing site.
