Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Assessment


Our environmental assessment of a property begins with an evaluation of its role in the surrounding sustainable ecology, and the opportunity to retain or enhance existing natural systems.

We prepare ecological baseline assessments, fish and wildlife habitat assessments, fisheries enhancement and compensation works, and riparian habitat remediation.

Our sustainability planning assessments consider opportunities to enhance existing natural systems to comply with local, provincial, and federal regulations.

Our Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Services include:

  • Ecological Baseline Assessments
  • Fish & Wildlife Habitat Assessments
  • Heron & Raptor Surveys
  • Negotiations & Permitting services
  • Fisheries enhancement & compensations works
  • Riparian habitat remediation
  • Environmental design & installation
  • Biofiltration
  • Creek relocation and bank stabilization
  • Conservation covenants & Ecogift dedications
  • Species-at-Risk Assessment

Our Successful Projects

  • Delsom Estates (Sunstone Community), Delta

    PLG provided the fish and wildlife assessment for the 107 acre, master planned community in Delta.  The assessment assisted in determining the impact of development on the existing fish and wildlife habitats on site. Learn more
  • B&B Contracting, Surrey

    Compilation of a report for the Environmental Review Committee (ERC); focusing on the existing water course and establishment of riparian setbacks in accordance with guidelines outlined in the "Fisheries Sensitive Zones", in the Streamside Protection Regulations of the BC Fish Protection Act (2001).  Proposed compensation for relaxed riparian setbacks, including provision of replacement plantings and additional setback dedication on site. 
  • Cloverdale Cold Storage, Surrey

    Wildlife assessment, including raptor-heron study, prior to the development of an 119,393 sq.ft cold storage warehouse.  Compilation of ERC report and attendance at the ERC meeting. Learn more
  • Ercon, Abbotsford

    PLG provided the Environmental Overview for a 29.6 acre property in Abbotsford, BC.  The review identified the water courses on site, and the development potential of the property in accordance with the Riparian Area Regulations for setbacks.
  • Campbell Heights 24 Industrial Park, Surrey

    PLG dedicated a wildlife corridor on site, to allow access and connectivity for local wildlife.  Collaborated with Surrey's Environmental Review Committee and planners to re-designate and relocate the on-site stream, and develop a bioswale along the southern portion of the property.
