Ecosystem Management

Meeting the challenges facing California’s unique ecosystems demands an integrative approach that incorporates ecological conservation with the goals of the public and private sectors. Finding innovative solutions to natural resource issues involving multiple stakeholders is a main focus at SBI. Over the years we have accomplished this by developing various management plans that coordinate the goals of our clients and government agencies with our knowledge of California ecology.

SBI has been involved with every stage of the planning process for resource management projects from goal-setting and concept development through implementation and long-term monitoring. Our experience includes projects ranging from small-scale efforts to measure the effects of specific vegetation management techniques on wildlife, to implementing species recovery to developing long term resource conservation strategies.
