Conservation Assessment & Planning

CBI develops effective conservation assessments and plans for species, habitat and ecosystems.  Our ecological training, knowledge of environmental regulations, and expertise with computer mapping, GIS analysis and remote sensing enable us to develop effective conservation plans and associated products.  We have delivered project reports, publications, map products, and decision-support tools over a wide range of topics including:

  • Forest Management and Protection Plans
  • Plant and Animal Species Conservation (including endangered species recovery planning and monitoring)
  • Nature Reserve Design and Habitat Conservation Planning
  • Ecological Connectivity Planning
  • Ecoregional Assessments
  • Invasive Plant Species Assessments and Monitoring

CBI provides these services to a wide range of clients and partners (including government agencies, corporations, foundations, and other non-profit organizations) at numerous geographic extents and spatial scales – local, regional, and global.  Projects are routinely conducted throughout the United States and internationally.  Besides a number of global projects, CBI has particular emphasis on Latin America outside of the US.
