Protected Species Observer Trainers

There are numerous environmental consultants who provide or train Protected Species Observers for industry. Please contact the consultants directly for more information on their programs.

NOAA Fisheries does not endorse any consultants or their training programs. However, NOAA Fisheries reviews curriculum and training materials periodically as a means of standardizing the course of instruction. For privacy reasons, NOAA Fisheries does not supply the names of approved observers to consultants or to industry.
