RSK’s International Projects Group (IPG) has developed an innovative biodiversity offset accounting model that considers project impacts against conservation actions and the extent to which these actions offset any impacts. As the results are presented on a numerical scale, they are easy to interpret and compare. RSK has already applied this model to one project and is about to use it on a second.
The eel, recognised for its snake-like appearance, is a mysterious creature that we know relatively little about. Despite rapidly declining numbers, resulting in a critically endangered conservation status, there are relatively few current studies to try and rectify this lack of knowledge.
