  • 3. How can we help? i* . . Smart Sitting 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. -r-rTÊ"ę. ". Multidisciplinary team We have a multidisciplinary and experienced team ready to advise in all your questions.
  • 4. 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. Pollutants l, l , l Pollutants can be released into the water during construction and operation *u phase and affect both biodiversity and public safety.
