Valuating Impacts to Ecosystems

Natural resources include fish, wildlife, biota, air, water, groundwater, drinking water supplies, and other such resources. Natural Resource Damage (NRD) occurs when there is a loss of services to the ecosystem and/or humans using the ecosystem.

BBJ Group has provided advisory and consulting services to its clients in the areas of identifying, negotiating and defending NRD claims. BBJ Group has quantified injuries and calculated the resulting damages. BBJ Group has also demonstrated that the alleged resource damages did not result in loss of service of the resource or that the resultant resource loss of service was less significant than claimed. BBJ Group has helped clients reduce damage claims made by parties alleging to have lost human (“pleasure”) natural resource services.
