Wildlife

Through the expertise of its principal, TEAMS-LTD brings substantial expertise in wildlife ecology and management to the company. Wildlife is important as a terrestrial resource for its existence and economic values, and as a powerful indicator of ecosystem health. Wildlife essentially co-exist with humans and their economic systems and are therefore joint products of systems that are frequently managed for multiple interests.

There are few resource projects that either do not include wildlife as an assessment consideration with a strong emphasis on how predicted changes to resources may impact the short- to long-term wellbeing of habitats of numerous wildlife species. In addition the founder conducted habitat assessments and created Critical Wildlife Habitat Maps for several 1:250,000 map sheets in Saskatchewan.

Research Species: Moose, White-tailed Deer, Elk, Barren Ground Caribou, Woodland Caribou, Timber Wolves, Beaver, Snowshoe Hares, Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, small mammals, passerines, waterfowl.

 

Projects with Major Wildlife Habitat Components

L&M Wood Products (Glaslyn, Sk.) - design and develop 200 year forest Mistik Management - design and develop 100 year forest management plan and impact assessment of that plan for a pulpmill and sawmill operating on more than 3 million hectares of lands in west-central Saskatchewan (1990-1995).
 

Weyerhaeuser Canada – long-term project identifying key elements in relationship between forestry practices and wildlife  populations and management. 
 

Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations – policy development and advisor on natural resource management.

FMC Corporation/World Widlilfe Fund – conducted extensive analysis of impact of the ag chemical, furadan on non-target wildlife in Western Canada and defended the corporate position.
