Our team of experienced ecologists has the necessary expertise to carry out a wide range of surveys of habitats, flora and fauna. This includes detailed assessments of both terrestrial and aquatic freshwater habitats and species on sites of all sizes. We have undertaken surveys on behalf of the National Parks and Wildlife Service, local authorities, local environmental groups, engineering firms, and private developers.

Our work is carried out to the highest standards of scientific accuracy and using best available technology. We produce maps and reports of publication quality and place special emphasis of delivering results on time and within budget.
