Abhas is wildlife biologist specializing in conducting special-status species surveys and habitat assessments for terrestrial vertebrates across California. He has experience mist-netting for birds and bats, mammal-trapping, and collecting a variety of ecological data on birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. With a passion for avian ecology, he particularly enjoys working on projects dealing with nesting behavior, migration patterns, and raptor biology. Additionally, Abhas uses his diverse skillset to provide project support in a vast array of environmental areas at Stillwater including biological resources, water quality, greenhouse gas remediation, CEPA/NEQA documentation, GIS data analysis, and marketing design. Before Stillwater, he worked at UC Berkeley’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology assisting in the curation of bird specimens, and studied Dark-eyed Juncos in Stanislaus National Forest analyzing their nesting and fledging patterns over an elevational gradient. In his free time, Abhas can be found taking pictures in East Bay Regional Parks, painting, and exploring San Francisco.
