The right biologists for the job
Padre biologists have a wide range of capabilities and specialties. Most have recovery permits allowing handling of listed species, including southern steelhead, California red-legged frog, snowy plover, least Bell’s vireo and willow flycatcher among others. Surveys for other special-status species may include rare plants, California tiger salamander, coast horned lizard, two-striped garter snake, blunt-nosed leopard lizard, burrowing owl, kangaroo rats (various species), bats and San Joaquin kit fox. Survey reports are prepared and may include impact avoidance and minimization measures, mitigation plans to compensate for habitat loss and monitoring recommendations during construction.
