Ecology

As specialist consulting ecologists, we can help you play your part in meeting increasingly rigorous legislation by protecting natural and developed terrestrial and aquatic environments. A large part of our work involves impact assessments for development projects including renewable energy, waste, mining, road construction, pipeline development, industrial and commercial development.
 
Our experienced consultants can provide expert advice on ecological and environmental issues affecting a broad range of habitats and protected species. Licensed members of our team can deal with great crested newts, bats, badgers, white-clawed crayfish and reptiles. We’re experienced in working with the Habitats Directive and giving evidence at public inquiries. We’re proud of our strong working relationships with Natural England, the Wildlife Trust, Countryside Council for Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage.
