Regulatory and management issues associated with energy development are often focused on impacts to listed, legally protected, or otherwise highly valued species and their habitats. Learn more about USGS research projects which are organized below by species, or groups of species, habitats, and other topics considered most relevant to agencies responsible for permitting development and species management. The Energy and Wildlife Research Annual Report for 2016 summarizes recent and ongoing energy and wildlife research projects.
