Marine Mammal and Acoustic Research
For 50 years, LGL has conducted marine mammal research and monitoring along the Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, and Gulf of Mexico coasts of Canada and the U.S.A., as well as numerous projects overseas, including eastern Russia.
LGL and associates literally "wrote the book" on effects of noise on marine mammals. After years of studies of the effects of industrial disturbance on whales and other marine mammals in the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans, LGL scientists compiled their information with collaborating partners to publish a comprehensive treatise on the subject (Marine Mammals and Noise, 1995, Academic Press).
Fisheries Research and Management
LGL has worked on fisheries stocks in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic oceans, in addition to those in the freshwater environments of North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Wildlife Research and Management
LGL has a long history of working with a wide range vertebrate and invertebrate wildlife species in North American habitats ranging from sub-tropical forests to Arctic tundra and pretty much everything in between.
Environmental Impact Assessment
Understanding the potential environmental impacts a project might have is key to determining the acceptability of a given proposal along with any ways in which adverse effects can be avoided or mitigated. At LGL, environmental assessment has been a primary focus of our work since the company began.
First Nation Support
LGL provides technical support and expert advice on natural resource matters to First Nations and other Indigenous peoples.
