Conservation planning involves the development of measures to guide long-term management of species and their habitats within the constraints posed by different types of land and resource use. The goals of a conservation planning document may include:
For a plan to succeed, the regional interplay of ecological, physical, and human factors must be well understood. In addition, the needs and concerns of multiple stakeholders must be balanced and addressed in a collaborative manner that achieves maximum benefits. H. T. Harvey & Associates’ senior team leaders guide planning efforts by articulating challenges and opportunities, connecting the efforts and ideas of various stakeholders, and grounding proposed solutions in sound science. Working from this foundation, our in-house technical experts, including restoration planners and biologists, wildland managers, wetland and plant ecologists, permitting specialists, wildlife and fisheries ecologists, taxonomists, and landscape architects, seamlessly prepare effective management planning documents and assist in their implementation.
