I am an ecologist and regulator with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The Regulatory Program is committed to protecting the Nation's aquatic resources and navigation capacity, while allowing reasonable development through fair and balanced decisions. The Corps evaluates permit applications for essentially all construction activities that occur in the Nation's waters, including wetlands.
"Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge"
"By ecology we understand the total science of the connections of the organism to the surrounding external world."
