Protected Species Surveys

Sylvan Ecology has a comprehensive knowledge of all aspects of protected species work, including surveys, licensing, mitigation and post construction monitoring. We have successfully carried out thousands of surveys all over UK for a variety of projects. Our specialist team of ecologists collectively hold Natural Resources Wales and Natural England survey licences for all of the major protected species

Sylvan Ecology can provide surveys and services for the following protected species:

  • European Protected Species surveys and licence applications – bats, dormice, great crested newts, otters, sand lizard and smooth snake etc.
  • Other protected and UK Biodiversity Action Plan species surveys – barn owl, badger, reptile (adder, grass snake, slow-worm, common lizard), water vole and white-clawed crayfish surveys
  • We hold development licences for Bats & Badgers, and can help develop a mitigation strategy to suit your needs
  • Bird surveys

To help plan your surveys and works dates, we have created a species survey calendar.
