Hello and welcome to AtoZec, we're a small collective of professionals powered by passion. We focus on wildlife surveys in Arizona and the Southwest, as well as numerous biological and NEPA services.
As owner, my goal is to move the environmental permitting process forward in an accurate, timely, and legally defensible manner. As a small business AtoZec can provide its knowledge and skills in a cost effective and efficient manner.
I work hard to do the job right and help move your project along in accordance with environmental laws and stewardship. It is important that as we expand as a species and develop our infrastructure, we do so in a responsible fashion. I enjoy doing my small part and helping clients do theirs.
I truly value the connections made over the years and look forward to more. I appreciate you stopping by the website for a glimpse. Feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks, and have a nice day/night when you leave here. -Eric
