Sound management of Florida's natural areas requires the availability of scientifically accurate information.  With over 25 years of field experience from the Florida panhandle to the Florida Keys, Heinrich Ecological Services is well-suited to assist our clients with the following ecological services:

• Small mammal and herpetofaunal (amphibian and reptile) surveys

• Gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) burrow surveys

• Diamondback terrapin (Malaclemys terrapin) surveys

• Upland habitat management

Please contact us to discuss how we can assist with your wildlife information needs.

Heinrich Ecological Services also conducts independent research with a focus on ecology and conservation.  Recent projects include diet of the coyote (Canis latrans) at an urban nature preserve, raptor predation of turtles, and geographic distribution of the Suwannee cooter (Pseudemys concinna suwanniensis) in its southern range.
