Our ecological services

Our ecologists provide a range of services related to biodiversity, ecosystems and the environment. Some of the key services that we offer include:

  1. Biodiversity Assessment: Our ecologists assess and monitor the diversity of plant and animal species within specific ecosystems. They may conduct surveys and analyse data to understand the variety of animals and fauna in a given area.
  2. Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA): We can contribute to EIAs to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of proposed development projects. They provide insights into how projects may affect local ecosystems and suggest mitigation measures.
  3. Protected species surveys: Our ecologists can carry out protected species surveys on proposed development sites in order to determine whether any species are at risk. These surveys are important during the planning application stage and can determine whether mitigation measures must be implemented.
  4. Nature Conservation and Restoration: We work on projects to restore and rehabilitate damaged or degraded habitats. We develop strategies to bring back native plant and animal species and improve the overall health of ecosystems.
  5. Arboricultural surveys: Our ecologists can conduct tree surveys which are often required by local planning authorities if a potential development site will be within close proximity to trees and woodland.

The role of an ecologist is to provide expert advice and support on ecological issues. This is often done throughout the construction or planning process as local planning authorities have various environmental requirements for proposed developments. By working closely with project stakeholders, our ecologists can help to ensure that the project is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner. They will always prioritise the aim of minimising any impact on the local ecosystem.
