What’s Being Said

On multiple occasions, Castanet has contacted Mike Dunn of Big Picture Biology as a subject matter expert for snake identification and snake behaviour information.

I was attempting to start a vineyard for 2 years but was blocked by bureaucratic red tape. BPB was able to quickly complete all necessary environmental assessments and worked with me to modify them to suit my vineyards needs. BPB even contacted members of parliament to advocate for reduced delays to the project. I would recommend BPB as a good problem-solving environmental consultant.
