Our biologists and ecologists help clients navigate regulatory and permitting challenges related to plant and animal habitat. Development and transportation projects sometimes require environmental offsets like the creation of new wetlands to make up for losses from new infrastructure. Our coastal and marine ecologists specialize in everything from protective grasses to shellfish and perform the assessments and planning you need to understand the natural resources at a project site. Our fish biologists help us rehabilitate river ecosystems and protect sensitive species. Often, these projects involve redesigning stream crossings like culverts and bridges that have blocked fish from accessing upstream spawning and rearing habitat. Biology also plays a role in many of our environmental restoration projects, where we rebuild habitat to support the sustainable growth of important species.
