Your conservation planning and restoration needs are unique and a one-size-fits-all solution won’t help your project succeed. At ICF, we work diligently to understand your objectives, and then we develop our approach, scope, and staffing plan to efficiently and effectively achieve results tailored to your specific needs.
From habitat conservation planning to implementation and compliance with state and federal environmental law, ICF has completed more than 70 habitat conservation plans in 26 states. We have a dedicated team of more than 30 science and policy experts focused solely on conservation planning and a deep bench of more than 1,000 technical staff, giving you access to a range of specialists to ensure the best chance of success for your project.
With deep understanding of key regulations including the Endangered Species Act (ESA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Clean Water Act (CWA), this team develops business cases, permitting strategies, conservation plans, and mitigation approaches for water, energy, transportation, forestry, and development clients. Our established presence and experience allows us to engage quickly and produce robust analyses and clear documents. And when the permitting is done, we’re also here to help you implement your plans.
Beyond planning and implementation, we are also here to help you and your staff understand what environmental regulation compliance, current habitat conservation practices, and changes in the industry. Our team publishes, presents, and offers custom group training on these topics and more.
Whether you need help with large-scale programmatic habitat conservation plans and related environmental compliance documents, preparing analysis and applications for programmatic wetland and eagle permits, or developing mitigation plans anywhere in the United States, ICF is here to help you.
