It is often important to determine whether species-at-risk occur within areas of proposed development. If they do, it can be important to determine range and abundance of those species at the site. Presence of these species often results in recommendations that would mitigate potential impacts to those species. Data derived from sensitive species-focused studies can also be used to measure potential on-going impacts of projects.

STRIX principals have experience with the following techniques:

  • Breeding bird surveys
  • Raptor call surveys
  • Amphibian call surveys
  • Winter transect tracking
  • Winter back-trailing surveys
  • Live-trapping (small mammals, songbirds and raptors)
  • Aerial surveys
  • Pellet count surveys
  • Bat surveys
  • Bird trapping and banding
  • Radar surveys
  • Radio and satellite telemetry
