Facilitating the Integration of Environmental Compliance

In Florida, the gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus) is one of several protected species commonly encountered during land development.  DRMP’s staff of biologists offers a full array of assessment, permitting and relocation services to comply with all requirements set forth by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).  With our extensive permitting experience, we can ensure rapid permit application submittals and expedited permit approvals for relocations. Our expert staff contains four FWC-Authorized Gopher Tortoise Agents.  This expertise combined with our recent experience obtaining approvals for the 1,100-acre Longino Ranch Gopher Tortoise Recipient Site, has provided DRMP with a unique one-stop, turnkey approach to gopher tortoise permitting. This continued relationship translates into added benefits for you in the form of faster permit approvals and reduced costs.
