Tara builds bird habitat models to minimize environmental impacts.

Bird habitat modeling

The oil and natural gas industry is always looking for ways to extract resources and build infrastructure efficiently while minimizing its environmental impact.

An example of this is through the creation of bird habitat models. These models are the culmination of extensive research on the habitat preferences of migratory birds known to inhabit areas where the industry operates. By creating profiles, environmental specialists have been able to predict where these birds are likely to be.

Equipped with these models, the oil and gas industry has been able to plan their activities to minimize the disturbance to these important habitat . This ensures that we’re all able to benefit from our natural resources with the least possible impact on local bird populations.
