Amphibian & Reptile surveys – our head herpetologist Andrew Tillson-Willis is a fully licensed Great Crested Newt worker registered with Natural England allowing him to undertake surveys and certain works. In addition to the standard class license Andrew also holds a personal license to allow the use of non-typical survey methods. We are also able to offer eDNA surveys.
Specialists in non-native species – our background in the commercial sector gives us an advantage when it comes to dealing with non-native species whether it’s the identification of species at all stages of development or using our knowledge of commercial trapping & farming techniques to capture and remove alien species from the wild.
Ex-situ & In-situ breeding for reintroduction programs – We are able to establish bio-secure pods isolated from our ‘exotic’ stock.
We are now also able to provide surveys for Badger, Otter, Water Vole, Water Shrew, & Mink.
