Hatfield has proven expertise in wildlife, biodiversity, and habitat management across a range of western Canadian climatic zones. Whether it’s aerial or ground-based inventories, ecological data analysis, or habitat evaluation, Hatfield can help guide proper management of wildlife and their habitat requirements. We can provide expert advice on all types of terrestrial wildlife, including raptors, water birds, songbirds, amphibians, reptiles, and small and large mammals. Our specialists are current on all relevant laws and regulations for wildlife (e.g., Species at Risk Act, Migratory Bird Convention Act), so that we can manage our clients’ risks and ensure compliance.
Our experts are intimately familiar with current standards and best practices for maintaining and/or enhancing ecosystems, ensuring that your project is designed, built, and operated to minimize negative impacts and ensure project compliance. Our monitoring and adaptive management programs are designed to ensure quick adjustments are possible regarding species and habitat stewardship. Mapping and data collection using traditional methods can also present a challenge in certain areas, which is why we integrate our Geomatics team within our wildlife programs.
