It’s a living thing

Ecology is more than a simple catalogue of animal and plant species. It is the study of complex interrelationships between living organisms, including humans, and their physical environment. It provides information on the benefits of healthy ecosystems and the means by which we can use resources in a sustainable way.

Today, the unpredictability of climate change, combined with political and social drivers for change, require enthusiastic, forward thinking ecologists to draw together the necessary information and deliver workable solutions. Temple offers bespoke ecological services to facilitate design and implementation, from project inception to completion. This includes a broad range of both traditional and more specialist survey, assessment and advisory services, including:

  • Protected species and habitat surveys
  • Ecological Impact Assessment
  • Management planning and habitat creation
  • Licensing/consents delivery
  • Clerk of Works

  • Policy and planning support and expert witness
