Sequoia assisted the property owner in establishing a conservation bank on their 3,354-acre property in Santa Clara County. Sequoia is tasked with all necessary biological surveys to determine absence/ presence of listed species within the property.
We have developed a phased study plan that is sensitive to the clients’ budget and the stage in bank development to ensure that resources are expended at the proper time. Sequoia is also leveraging new technologies such as drone/unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery, camera trapping, and mapping, and environmental DNA sampling (eDNA) for cryptic species to generate baseline information for subsequent analyses.
Sequoia coordinates with the agencies on behalf of the family and drafts all required documents for establishing a conservation bank including a prospectus and bank enabling instrument. Sequoia also prepared a feasibility study to explore market valuation and bank crediting strategies and habitat creation, enhancement, and restoration opportunities.
