Amphibians

Amphibians including great crested newts and natterjack toads

Female great crested newt, Essex

We do surveys, reports, impact licences and mitigation.

We provide training courses.

We do ecotourism trips.

We conduct scientific research.

For planning and development…..

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.
