Press Release:

Firm Completes Indiana Bat Assessment For Apple Project In Kansas City, Missouri


July 16, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully received a clearance letter from the US Fish and Wildlife Service in compliance with the Endangered Species Act confirming the absence of regulated habitat at the Project Apple site in Kansas City, Missouri.

 

Scientists at Terra Technologies performed a detailed forestry survey of relevant species and morphological characteristics in order for the governing agency to determine the eligibility for habitat protection. Indiana bats prefer certain tree species including hickories, sycamore, and cottonwoods as favored hibernacula for raising young. Dead snags next to streams and other relevant morphological characteristics of the trees are often used as indices to determine the quality of habitat .

 

Because forested regions on the parcel lacked the required population and density of designated upper canopy tree species favorable to Indiana bat habitat and there was a general absence of morphological indices, construction activities at the Project Apple site will not be constrained by seasonal limitations for forested clearing.

 

For more information about endangered species evaluations, contact your local office of Terra Technologies.
