When developments result in the destruction of wildlife habitat, planning conditions often require a new area of habitat to be created, particularly if protected species are affected. We can create areas that provide habitat for a wide range of scarce and protected species - from mammals and birds to reptiles, amphibians and scarce plants.

We are an ecological contractor who undertakes practical work to turn ecological plans into practice. We support ecologists with protected species trapping and translocation. We provide all sorts of wildlife fence including reptile fencing. We control vegetation, clear trees and deal with a range of invasive species.
