Ground-breaking program to restore and preserve the estuary in two states
Ecological restoration is central to successful, dynamic, and productive communities. AKRF helps our clients unlock the true potential of the natural resources under their jurisdiction by providing an interdisciplinary consultancy built to tackle today’s ecological challenges.
Our in-house team includes environmental scientists, ecologists, biologists, environmental toxicologists, statisticians, analysts, and regulatory compliance specialists who recognize the interrelationship of an ecosystem’s physical, chemical, and biological factors and are able to balance project needs with preservation.
We regularly contribute to the restoration and conservation of coastal, tidal, and forested wetlands as well as streams, marshes, oyster habitats, species, and more. For replacement of the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York, for example, compensatory mitigation projects designed and implemented by AKRF included the design of a secondary channel at Gay’s Point to improve water quality and biological diversity; an oyster restoration program that provided habitat to offset dredging impacts; and sturgeon conservation research and monitoring.
