Protected Species Services and Licensing

Tamar Ecology is experienced in a wide range of protected species surveys, and can provide advice on avoidance, mitigation and enhancements.  Our staff and associates hold licences for species including bats, barn owl, badger, great crested newt, dormice and fisheries.  Many ecological surveys are constrained by season, and early engagement of an ecologist can often help prevent delays later in the project.  Please contact us if you would like to discuss your site and possible requirements.

  • Bats
  • Dormice
