BIO SURVEYS

Natural Resource Management

Passage of the Endangered Species Act (ESA of 1973) required that any federally-authorized project not jeopardize the continued existence of any federally listed threatened or endangered plant or animal species or result in the destruction of essential habitat of such species. Many states have adopted similar laws protecting unique plant and animal resources. Proper surveys for listed species are often necessary during the initial stages of a project to avoid unanticipated issues that could delay project completion.
