Approved Biologists

Request for Qualifications: Biologist Approval Process (NEW)

The Conservancy is seeking professionals to submit qualifications for CDFW and USFWS approval to conduct species surveys for covered activities in the HCP/NCCP Permit Area as required per Chapter 6 of the Plan. To be approved, biologists must have the experience, education, and training necessary to perform the tasks described in the HCP/NCCP accurately and in an unbiased fashion. This new process will eliminate the need for project-by-project approval requests. See below for the RFQ details.
