Technical Expertise

We often work with partners on projects where our role is one of providing technical expertise, rather than being the lead.  We can provide:

Site visits to assess biological and landscape conditions, and explore management options; synthesizing literature and site visits to develop and help write grant applications; participate in formal grant review panels on behalf of granting agencies; participation in landscape or regional planning efforts that focus on wildlife and habitat resources; visualization and use of spatial data to assess habitats using computer geographic information systems (GIS).

Some examples of our Technical Assistance include:
