Species Habitat Mitigation

Experienced Team, Trusted Measures.

When listed species are present, RES Species Habitat Mitigation Solutions deliver the certainty of a streamlined permit at a fixed price. RES delivers mitigation or conservation measures that are trusted by regulators and support long-term species recovery.

Species are regulated at the federal level, and often the state or local agency level, making the determination challenging. RES helps you design, assemble, and deliver a species offset solution that that moves through the permitting process very rapidly, even in regions where protocols are still maturing.

We are uniquely positioned to predictively address uncertainties in how listed species are handled under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and/or state programs, based on our strong national and local relationships with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) and other regulators, as well as the scientific community.

RES has an end-to-end operating company structure specifically focused on providing a total stewardship solution. This structure enables robust collaboration across disciplines, shorter project timelines, and an ecologically rich final product supporting the species of concern. It also allows us to confidently offer surety bonding to clients, furthering the transfer of your regulatory risk.
