Since then, our company has expanded and our expert ecologists have the skills and experience to carry out a complete range of ecological projects. The expertise of our ecologists is built on an ongoing involvement in ecological research and voluntary survey work.

Much of our work involves a wide range of development projects and over time, our company has built up a reputation for reliable and cost-effective work. Provision of consistent and high quality advice is important to us and our clients return time after time to reuse our ecological services.

Our professional staff are trained to a high level of expertise and are members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology & Environmental Management (CIEEM) as well as holding a number of Natural England and Natural Resources Wales protected species survey and mitigation licenses.

The survey season for great crested newts is fast approaching, give us a call to book in your surveys. This photo shows one of the many great crested newts we recorded breeding in a newly created pond at a site in Somerset, demonstrating how mitigation can really benefit this vulnerable species. Excuse the mucky hand! (Licenced ecologist present).

Natural England has recently confirmed that the Poole Harbour Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) will see an extra 1,800 hectares of land and sea under its protection – an increase of 40 per cent. This is fantastic news for the thousands of waterfowl that call Poole Harbour home over the winter including goldeneye, brent geese and black-tailed godwit, pictured here having a scratch.
