Amphibians including great crested newts and natterjack toads
We provide training courses.
We do ecotourism trips.
We conduct scientific research.
For planning and development…..
We do surveys, reports, impact licences and mitigation.
We assess the potential of a site to support great crested newts (other UK amphibians are protected by policy only except for natterjack toads and it is believed all populations of these are already known).
We conduct follow up surveys:
• Habitat Suitability Index ‘calculations’.
• Rapid Risk Assessments.
• eDNA testing.
• Presence/likely absence surveys (torchlight, bottle ‘traps’, netting and egg searches).
Mitigation may include avoidance of impacts, district licensing, habitat creation, licensed translocation and habitat destruction.
