Terrestrial Science

You have a project with a specific set of needs and expectations; we have a practical approach for meeting them. How? — by listening to your needs and expectations then using our extensive terrestrial sciences expertise to map them into a realistic program design and implement it effectively — all while satisfying the most stringent regulations. Whether it’s baseline inventories, impact assessment, mitigation, monitoring planning or management we’re focused on what matters to your project’s success.

Terrestrial Science

Wildlife/Wildlife Habitat Work

  • Wildlife impact assessment
  • Wildlife population inventories
  • Wildlife distribution and population inventories using DNA capture/recapture methods,aerial surveys, call-back surveys, point counts and banding
  • Wildlife management and monitoring planning
  • Vegetation inventories, live trapping, pellet counts, snow track surveys, wolf and bear den monitoring, habitat suitability and resource selection function mapping
  • Rare and invasive species surveys
  • Raptor, songbird, waterfowl and seabird inventories
  • Breeding bird and active nest survey and monitoring programs
  • Pre-clearing bird nest surveys.

Bear fur and other curiosities

How do you determine Grizzly bear density and distribution on the tundra in western Nunavut? Why, with barbed wire and tripods of course. This video demonstrates an innovative and practical approach EDI took in 2012 to gathering Grizzly bear fur samples for DNA.
