The federal ESA is one of the most significant environmental laws that has far-reaching effects on natural resource management and project development. ESA compliance facilitation is a hallmark service at MB&G. Our biologists evaluate both terrestrial and aquatic species on all levels of project complexity. We have extensive experience performing all aspects of ESA compliance including habitat surveys and documentation; assessment of impacts; developing Habitat Conservation Plans; and preparing Biological Assessments and other programmatic ESA documentation.
