Invertebrates & the Law
Some invertebrate species are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act (1981) and the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations (2017) as well as many species being included as Priority Species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. If there is habitat onsite known to favour more uncommon and rare invertebrates or if there are nearby records of significant species, further surveying may be required.
Phase II invertebrate surveys
Ecosupport can provide expert professional invertebrate surveyors covering all species groups to carry out survey and assessment of invertebrate communities throughout Hampshire and the UK.
We can provide surveys and assessment, and produce mitigation and enhancement strategies and management plans for a varied range of projects as well as habitat creation and enhancement, including the creation of deadwood habitats and wetland schemes, woodland management, and fen and grassland restoration within small and large-scale developments.
Ecosupport can provide you with Phase I and Phase II surveys and suitable mitigation for any site requiring invertebrate surveys. Speak to one of our experienced ecologists about the details of your project and site.
