Johnson Engineering’s certified senior ecologist John Curtis received his Burrowing Owl Registered Agent Permit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Earlier this year, the FWC reclassified the burrowing owl as a threatened species, released new guidelines with expanded permitting and mitigation requirements, and required anyone involved with implementation of burrowing owl incidental take permits to demonstrate qualifications per the guidelines.

As an FWC registered agent, John is authorized to survey, video scope, and excavate inactive burrowing owl burrows. Only registered agents will be allowed to provide these services. For more information on projects with burrowing owl involvement contact John Curtis at [email protected].
