Endangered Species & Wildlife Protection-"Taking" Care of Business

Presentations:

----------------------------------------------------------------

Once a plant or animal is listed as endangered or threatened, a challenging regulatory process is triggered that forces developers to assess and determine how listings will affect project budgets and development timetables, while also protecting critical habitats for listed species. If the species continues to decline towards endangered status, development in critical habitats may be endangered as well.

What are the effects of listing endangered and threatened species on future development and industry, particularly energy development (wind, transmission) and the forest products industry? What innovative ways exist to manage and protect wildlife while maintaining sustainable economic development? What help is available for developers to assess their projects and determine how listings will affect their project budgets and timetables? What other listings are on the horizon? 

Speakers Include: 

  • Juliet Browne, Partner & Chair, Environmental Law Group – Verrill Dana (Regulatory)
  • Dale Knapp, Senior Environmental Consultant – Tetra Tech (Aquatics)
  • Trevor Peterson, Senior Wildlife Biologist – Stantec (Terrestrial)
  • Kelly Boden, Partner & Co-Chair, Environmental Law Group – Verrill Dana (Moderator)
