2015 Bat Acoustic Services

2015 Bat Acoustic Services

In 2015 DEC continued to provide our clients with bat acoustic services, which has become fundamental since the 2015 listing of the northern long-eared bat as a Federal threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.  As a condition of Federal and State environmental permits, DEC has assisted clients in the determination that their projects are not likely to adversely affect Federal listed bat species.  In 2015, DEC monitored 40 bat acoustic survey sites, which included over 50 linear miles

14-Acre Lake Reclamation Project

14-Acre Lake Reclamation Project

14-acre Lake Reclamation Project – DuBois Environmental Consultants were contracted to remove and temporarily relocate Pennsylvania’s largest eastern redbelly turtle population prior to a 9-month dredging project. DEC removed and relocated 523 turtles total, including over 120 redbelly turtles from the lake. 10 redbelly turtles were affixed with transmitters and their locations radio-tracked throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons to track behavior and obtain activity parameters.

Federally Listed Threatened Species

The northern long-eared bat was federally listed a threatened species on April 2, 2015. In 2015, DEC conducted over 200 net nights of mist netting to physically capture northern long-eared bats. Radio-tracking of captured northern long-eared bats has resulted in the identification of critical roosting areas and the identification of critical summer habitat for this imperiled species.

Ocean County Airport 2013-2014

DuBois Environmental just celebrated the grand opening of a new Crosswind Runway at the Ocean County Airport in Berkeley Township. The runway was needed to provide a safer landing alternative for smaller aircraft during adverse wind and weather conditions. The Crosswind Runway is the newest runway constructed in New Jersey in the last 30 years. Scientists from DuBois Environmental were instrumental in providing biological oversight during the project to protect the resources of the Pinelands.

Delisting of Delmarva Fox Squirrel

Delisting of Delmarva Fox Squirrel

Between 2009 and 2011, biologists with DEC conducted county-wide photomonitoring surveys in Southern Maryland documenting distribution and population trends of the Federally listed Delmarva Fox Squirrel. We are happy to see that a 2012 status review found that the species has rebounded so well, that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is preparing to propose to remove the squirrel from Endangered Species Act protection.
