Community Stewardship


“With all of the projects we have worked on together, I have found Kayt to be well prepared for the task at hand and reliable despite a sometimes varied field schedule. I also appreciated her skills in data compilation for analysis, and found her written and oral communications to be clear and concise. By bringing Kayt onto your team, you can be assured the objectives of your task will be investigated with professionalism, dedication, and respect.”

Lora McAuley, MSc., RPBio., Lake Trail Environmental Consulting Ltd.

“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kayt for any field biology work that may involve arduous field conditions; that requires someone who works well with others and who is strongly self-motivated with an innate passion and interest in understanding the natural world.”

Michael Force, Seabird and Marine Mammal Identification Specialist, NOAA/AMLR

“I would not hesitate to recommend Katy for future marine conservation work, particularly if it provided opportunity for her employment in this field. She is a biologist dedicated to habitat conservation.”

Paul Horgen, Chair Board of Directors, Comox Valley Project Watershed Society and Professor Emeritus, University of Toronto

Services Include:


Environmental Management

Construction projects are often complex and require careful planning to avoid unnecessary impact to the natural environment. Baynes Sound Environmental provides effective planning, implementation, and communications support for these projects in all phases, including Environmental Impact Assessment, Environmental Management Planning and Construction Monitoring services.

Habitat Assessment

Everyone lives and works in an ecosystem. Ecosystems vary but are essentially composed of the interactions between life forms in shared habitats (or the surrounding environment). Sometimes the physical property on which we live includes the habitat of creatures that are recognized as threatened and require protection. Baynes Sound Environmental knows how to identify key habitats and assess potential impacts, as well as design effective mitigation measures when impacts can’t be avoided.

Community Stewardship

An important part of our work as biologists is to be involved with community stewardship initiatives, either as advisors or active participants. Baynes Sound Environmental is committed to providing expertise when possible to such projects and considers it a valuable opportunity.
