About BRI's Services

BRI has a breadth of experience capturing and monitoring wildlife. We have expertise collecting data on all aspects of the ecosystem from environmental covariates to invertebrates to top level predators as well as managing ecological data, conducting geospatial analysis, and creating ecological models.

We use both traditional research methods such as point counts and boat-based surveys, and the latest technology such as high definition video aerial surveys, acoustics, and satellite tracking. Once data is collected in the field, we have specialized biologists to identify wildlife, data managers with expertise in quality assurance processes, coding, and the creation of relational databases to store results, software and analytical expertise to map findings and conduct geospatial analyses, and ecological modelers to interpret complex systems.
