Listed Species Studies
Listed species include threatened, endangered, candidate, and species of special concern which can also present opportunities for the client to preserve and enhance the quality of sensitive habitat.
In addition to Gopher Tortoise services, SWCA also has survey and monitoring experience with other protected species such as American bald eagle, Florida black bear, eastern indigo snake, and the Florida scrub-jay.
We use the latest techniques to determine whether listed species are likely to be present on your property. If necessary, we conduct field investigations to establish the presence, absence, or status of listed animal and plant species. Usually, we use GIS and GPS data to create maps that show areas of concern. We can then use this data, combined with your proposed site plan, to work with you and the permitting agencies in developing a solution.
