We have also completed habitat suitability / capability mapping, contributed to Best Management Practices (BMPs) and status reports, conducted species-at-risk habitat ranking and polygon refinement, evaluated the potential for species-at-risk occurrence and conducted species-at-risk surveys following applicable protocols
