Protected Species

Ecus specialise in survey, assessment, monitoring, mitigation and licensing for protected plant and animal species. We provide a professional, pragmatic and responsive service to our clients throughout the UK and overseas.

Our licensed ecologists undertake work relating to a full range of UK and European protected species including:

  • Badger

  • Barn owl
  • Otter
  • Great crested newt
  • Water vole
  • White-clawed crayfish
  • Reptiles

  • Luronium natans and other aquatic plants

As well as standard surveys we provide detailed ecological assessments, population estimates and behavioural studies. We routinely develop detailed impact avoidance and mitigation proposals to meet the requirements of Natural England licensing and the planning process.

We have a dedicated site team who undertake implementation of mitigation measures including design, build and restoration of habitats and species translocations.
