Species at Risk Inventory and Assessment
Species at Risk studies have been an integral component of Gebauer & Associates work portfolio since the company was formed. Some key projects have involved development of recovery strategies for rare wildlife species occurring in the Okanagan (e.g., White-headed Woodpecker), research studies on Great Blue Heron, American Avocet and Sandhill Crane, surveys of Pacific Water Shrew, Oregon Forestsnail and Red-legged Frog, and general Species at Risk assessments for federal properties. For most projects that Gebauer & Associates is involved in, a detailed analysis of potential rare species occurring within the project area is undertaken prior to focused rare species field surveys.
