Cooper Ecological Monitoring, Inc. (EIN 72-1598095) was founded in 2005 by Daniel S. Cooper, formerly with Audubon California, and author of "Important Bird Areas of California" (2004).
Together with a network of partner biologists, we bring extensive experience in designing and conducting studies of bird distribution and habitat usage, and employ the latest scientific principles and techniques.
What We Do
Environmental Compliance (CEQA/NEPA) and Monitoring
We help write and review biological sections of environmental impact reports, and advise clients on avoiding impacts to protected species and natural resources during development and restoration projects.
We bring over 10 years of professional experience surveying fauna and flora of southern California, and tailor survey methods to meet both our client's needs and the characteristics of each site. While most of our work focuses on birds, we work with a network of colleagues with a diverse range of specialized knowledge.
