We have a team of 15 in-house ecologists, including botanists, ornithologists, fresh water ecologists and licensed surveyors for bats, great crested newts, white-clawed crayfish, natterjack toad and fresh water pearl mussel. We also have a trained arboricultural surveyor, electro-fishing surveyor, Marine Mammal Observer (MMO) and an accredited River Habitat Surveyor (RHS). In addition, we can call on a team of trained bat surveyors to assist with large bat surveys. This broad range of expertise enables us to undertake high quality but cost-effective wildlife survey.
