An Effective Approach to ESA Consultation

and Planning for Projects in

Northern Spotted Owl Habitat

Doug Laye

Klamath Falls Fish and Wildlife Office


What is an effective consultation?

One that:

► Fully considers the impacts to T and E species

► Helps to attain the goals of the project

► Is consistent with regulations or statutes

► Is timely


What is the key to effective consultation?

A) Waiting until the last minute to talk to anyone about the project

because that gives them the least amount of time to derail it.

B) Waiting until your boss tells you that you’ve got to involve “others”

in the planning process.

C) Pretending that consultation is only for projects that aren’t as

important as yours


What is the key to effective consultation?

Communication

► Early

Preferably when the project is in the first stages of consideration

or even the brainstorm phase

Before documents get drafted and the action gets locked in

► Often

Because this builds a relationship between people of different disciplines and issues will surface more informally

before strong positions are developed


What is necessary for good communication?

Calibration

Calibration - Developing common understandings of

words and phrases




What types of site specific information

might lead to customized projects?

Site specific information such as:

► Owl biological information

► Habitat Distribution

► Environmental factors

► Fuel Distribution

► Fire behavior

► Fire starts


So now you’ve got a well planned,

site specific, rational project that has sailed

through consultation….

What could go wrong now ?????


Failure at the implementation level

Goals and objectives must be clearly communicated

to the folks that are implementing the action

on the ground


“You can’t remove too many large

trees from spotted owl habitat”


Communication

Calibration

Site specific information

Informed implementation
