Permit Application Support
Our lead scientists prepare documents necessary for work and permit applications including Incidental Harassment Applications (IHA), Environmental Impact Statements (EIS), Environmental Assessments (EA), and technical reports.
We provide customized mitigation and data collection plans in advance of permit applications — with the ability to conduct monitoring and mitigation reporting from aerial, land, and sea platforms.
Data Collection / Reporting
Our marine mammal and protected species observers are marine biologists and experts in both species identification and behavior, and record meticulous, unbiased data of mitigation events. The data is delivered in a format that is useful, specific to each project, and ready for analysis.
