services for biodiversity?
r' Compliance with performance standards (eg. IFC)
I* Identify, prevent and/ or minimize environmental
I' Undertake EIA process
i' Predict and avoid/ mitigate impacts
r Construction follow-up
-- Achieve No Net Loss/ Net Gain
~' Restore habitat
How can we help?
i* . .
By means of an adequate cartography of sensitive marine and terrestrial
habitats and Communities we can help avoid environmental issues since early
stages of your project. This can either be done at macro or micro level.
, ô Monitoring
Monitoring surveys allows confirmation of species onsite and determine the
peak of its activity and distribution. This allows to construct density and
sensitivity maps and better predict impacts so that they can be avoided.
During operation phase, it allows to confirm the extent of predícted impacts.
5555 Careful planning
We can advise you during you planning phase so that valuable information is
integrated into your construction planning such as, for example, timing of
specific activities to avoid sensitive periods of the most affected species.

What to monitor?
` Birds (aquatic and terrestrial)
l ` . r Birds are mainly disturbed during construction activities. However, nesting
grounds of sensitive species and feeding areas should also be avoided.
(i; Fish communities
l , My This group can be affect by noise/ vibrations from construction and are sensitive
'Nr to pollutants that may be released. Monitoring of this community is important
specially for commercial species.
f. g r Marine mammals 8 turtles
, . . i Monitor occurrence and determine sensitive areas (such as feeding areas).
T' During construction, certain activities should be avoided when mammals species
are nearby. During operation phase, collisions are the biggest threat. For turtles,
lights from the ports are of concern to the light sensitive species.
gig, Habitats 8 benthic communities
lig/ Â'- -n These should be survey and mapped so that sensitivity maps can be constructed.
M; ' Destruction and alteration of habitat and benthic communities are one of the
most important concerns during port constructions and operation due to direct
destruction. Alien species brought in ballast waters are also a concern.
l, l , l Pollutants can be released into the water during construction and operation
*u phase and affect both biodiversity and public safety.
