Protected Species Surveys

At Greenlight, we offer a wide range of protected species surveys to ensure your development does not threaten endangered habitats. Our surveyors hold the relevant Natural England species survey licences, and we conduct all our species surveys in accordance with the current best practice.

Our team has extensive experience undertaking protected species surveys and we invest in state-of-the-art technology to assist us with our findings. For example, our bat surveys are carried out with state-of-the-art Anabat and Wildlife Acoustics bat detectors which record bat echolocation sounds; we also use infrared camera equipment to accurately pinpoint roosts.

For more information on each service, please click on the separate headings or contact us today and we would be very happy to discuss your requirements outside these categories.
