Ecological Consultancy Services

Monitoring fieldwork on a developed windfarm site
Natural Research (Projects), NRP, is an ecological consultancy company with specialisation in birds. We deliver high quality, objective research, assessments and monitoring for commercial projects of all sizes, such as on-shore and off-shore windfarms, hydro-electric schemes, forestry developments, and quarry and road construction. Protocols for Environmental Impact Assessments developed by us and our co-operators are, in many cases, the industry standard, and as a result, our products are seen as authoritative.

Our team provides a wide range of services from initial desk-based surveys to scoping, research design, data collection, analysis, interpretation and presentation of results. We work closely with our clients, advising on project design and mitigation for protected species and their habitats. The strong combination of our field expertise and knowledge of conservation legislation means that our final reports are comprehensive and supported, if required, by experienced presentation at Public Inquiry.

NRP is a medium-sized company. Our employees have a successful track record of providing superior services to individuals, and small and large corporate clients. We are able to conduct start-to-finish, stand-alone research, or work effectively within a team of other specialist consultants. Based in Scotland, where so much environmentally sensitive development is currently happening, we are well appointed to supply our services locally, while still within easy reach of work in other countries via convenient travel connections.

As an established consultancy, we recognise our clients' needs, whilst still retaining independent integrity required to conduct high-quality assessments. Our clients include national and international organisations with whom we have worked on a variety of environmental issues to find solutions to problems.
