Biodiversity Assessments

Before your project begins, Hatfield Consultants helps you understand ecological and social values by conducting biodiversity assessments.

Working with local partners, our biodiversity specialists collect data on species and natural resources at proposed project sites, using that information to prepare a detailed overview of the environment before a project commences. We complement field data collection with habitat mapping, socio-cultural assessment, and data analysis and modeling. Employing both traditional and innovative methods, we help you make informed and responsible decisions about your project.
