Habitat Management and Restoration Advice

We are able to draw on 50 years of collective knowledge of managing land for conservation over Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust’s 4000 hectare estate. We can produce bespoke habitat management plans for your site, including a site descriptions and landscape context, identification of important features, conservation objectives and prescriptions, and a monitoring plan. We can also assist with stakeholder engagement and public consultation. You can commission us to plan and help deliver your project, be it pond restoration, woodland management or wildflower meadow creation.

Habitat and Species Survey, and Monitoring

We can carry out a range of ecological surveys including Phase I and II habitat survey, habitat condition assessments, hedgerow and tree surveys. We are also able to offer bird, bat, badger great-crested newt, reptile, white-clawed crayfish and southern damselfly survey services. Our ecologists hold protected species licences and are full members of CIEEM. We can also provide mitigation survey and monitoring services.

Specific wildlife surveys should be carried out at the appropriate time of year, please download our survey calendar to help plan your project.

Farm Habitat Management Plans

For protected sites, stewardship schemes or to benefit specific species. Our advisors have a wealth of knowledge and experience of different habitat types and on farm habitats.

Woodland Management Plans

Advice on creating, managing and restoring woodlands. Advice on grants available and assistance with the application process from initial advice to full applications undertaken.

Interpretation Boards and Displays

We are often asked to help with ecological information needed for interpretation boards and signage for community spaces to communicate management work and/or what wildlife is present on site. We can help identify the key features to communicate, and provide the facts and figures and accompanying text in the style to suite your needs.
