Biology consulting services are required on projects with the potential to impact the natural environment. To begin, biological assessments identify possible constraints and assure that negative impacts, when identified, will be minimized and mitigated, if not avoided altogether.
WRA’s experts are professional scientists, specializing in areas including aquatic ecology, botany, wetlands, and wildlife. With over 30 years of biology consulting and natural resource consulting experience, we are well-versed in the biological regulatory issues likely to affect your project and have the requisite expertise, experience, and resources to provide you with guidance you can trust.
We advise clients in need of biological consulting in the following areas:
Biological Resources Assessments
Land development on or near natural areas typically requires an understanding – whether general or thorough – of the potential biological impacts of your project on the site. Read more.
Surveys detailing plant life present on your project site are often needed to determine the possible presence, or assured absence, of protected plant species. Read more.
Wildlife Species Surveys
Endangered and threatened wildlife species surveys are often mandatory elements of development projects. Read more.
Biological Construction Monitoring
Careful biological construction monitoring is a critical component of any construction project where listed species are present. Read more.
Mitigation to reduce impacts or replace unavoidable losses associated with public and private projects commonly takes the form of habitat restoration and enhancement. Read more.
In light of increased regulation and agency involvement, projects today involving aquatic habitat typically require a thorough and detailed analysis of potential impacts to fisheries. Read more.
Preserve Management Plans
Open space and mitigation projects commonly call for preserve management plans to guide ongoing maintenance and monitoring activities to ensure that habitats are protected. Read more.
