Endangered species habitat, presence/absence or site specific studies are required by several regulatory permitting processes. Construction and other development activities typically require an endangered species habitat review. If endangered species habitat is found, a presence/absence study is conducted. If an endangered species is found, site specific studies may be conducted to ensure proposed activities will not impact any endangered species. Arroyo staff have successfully completed various types of endangered species studies.
Additionally, Arroyo staff have experience working on restoration projects where the primary focus is to protect and enhance the endangered species by identifying critical habitat requirements, then creating and enhancing such features. See “Projects” for more details.
