Bat Surveys

We have been conducting endangered bat surveys for the last 20 years.  Our staff hold both state and federal scientific collecting permits.  We continually monitor the ever changing regulatory guidelines to make sure our surveys are in compliance .  We have surveyed in multiple states and three different countries.  Our threatened and endangered species surveys include Indiana Bats, Northern Long-eared Bats, Virginia Big-eared Bats, Ozark Big-eared Bats, Gray Bats, and Tri-colored Bats.

Besides surveying for threatened and endangered bat species, we also conduct bat habitat assessments and potential roost tree (PRT) surveys.  Changes to bat survey guidelines has resulted in an increase for PRT surveys and bat box installations.  We have conducted habitat surveys and installed bat boxes for commercial developments, oil and gas, and airports.

Cheat Mountain Salamander Surveys

Cheat Mountain Salamander Habitat

We are on the qualified Cheat Mountain Salamander surveyor list and have all required permits to conduct surveys.  We conduct both habitat assessment surveys as well as presence-probable absence surveys for Cheat Mountain Salamander.  We have conducted surveys for private land owners, ski resorts, federal government, and non-profit organizations.

Other Biological Surveys

Besides bats, we also survey for a variety of other species including fish, benthic macroinvertebrates, amphibian and reptiles, the recently delisted West Virginia Northern flying squirrel, and the recently listed Guyandotte River Crayfish and Big Sandy Crayfish.
