Increasing overlap between the military’s training and testing operations and endangered plant and wildlife species and habitat within installation borders have heightened the need for off-site mitigation.
As a companion study to Sonoma County's vegetation mapping program, the University of Maryland and WRA are producing a map of carbon sequestered in Sonoma County's live vegetation.
Rare plants are finally moving out of the regulatory gray area. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is proposing a regulation that will provide a mechanism for projects to go forward that may have impacts to certain plant species designated as “rare” under the Native Plant Protection Act.
WRA is excited to announce the opening of our new San Diego office. San Diego is a natural fit for us. We have worked on a broad range of important projects in the region for over 30 years, are very familiar with local regulations, and have excellent relationships with all of the local regulators.
If it’s a fish, critter, native plant, watercourse, or sensitive habitat, CDFW is in charge of ensuring it is protected or preserved.
