Accurate assessments of environmental resources
Padre can facilitate preliminary planning of development by providing constraints analyses identifying biological resources that should be considered during initial land use planning. We typically conduct literature research and biological surveys during appropriate seasons to develop a biological inventory of the development area, and produce maps identifying the location of biological resources. Mapping may include buffer areas and biological preserve areas to facilitate project approval. We also conduct focused special-status species surveys within terrestrial and aquatic environments including the marine environment to facilitate planning.
