If performing an environmental assessment is part of your job, you must be familiar with Endangered and Threatened (E&T) species survey techniques, habitat assessments, and regulations. Whether your focus is land development or land preservation, this program will answer all your E&T questions and help you complete an accurate assessment.
Dealing with E&T species requires both scientific and regulatory skills and knowledge. You must be able to recognize an E&T species and be able to identify potential habitats, even when the target species is not present. You must be familiar with the regulatory implications of an E&T species, and be able to write a clear, concise, and informative report. This popular two-day course will introduce you to accessing location records for NJ E&T species, performing a survey for E&T species, and preparing the appropriate report.
This course will include a series of presentations on selected species with an emphasis on those inhabiting southern New Jersey. Presentations will include information on visual and vocal identification, life history, history of occurrence in New Jersey, reasons for being listed, current range within the state, best methods for searching, evaluation of habitat, and relative regulatory importance.
Speakers will include private consultants, representatives from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey.
