ESS Ecology


Based in Edinburgh ESS Ecology operates throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland and in offshore territorial waters throughout the world.

Our work includes habitat and species specific surveys (terrestrial, freshwater and marine) ranging from individual protected species surveys (bat, great crested newt, badger, otter, water vole, birds, reptiles and amphibians), to full Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIA). Other services include phase 1 / extended phase 1 habitat surveys, NVC surveys, marine ecology (sea bird and marine mammals), invertebrate studies, tree surveys and BREEAM assessments.
