Protected Species

Protected Species

Creating habitat and improving sites for protected species is a valuable part of our work. Species specific site enhancements might include installing artificial Otter holts, Badger setts and large Bat roost structures.

Wetlands for amphibians or Water Voles can also be created. A good example of this was the Water Vole wetland project, which was constructed for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust at Skelbrooke.

We also deliver mitigation schemes for developments that effect protected species populations. This may include Great Crested Newt and reptile fencing, installation of Bat boxes, planting hedge corridors and Badger sett exclusion fencing.

We can combine these practical services with our ecological consultancy skills to provide the full package in terms of protected species work.
