Wildlife services

With his extensive knowledge and experience studying and working with wildlife,  John is able to offer a number of wildlife and natural history related services. He is able to use a number of techniques, including wildlife tracking, with the focus on terrestrial mammals, reptiles and amphibians. 

Surveys

Mammals of conservation interest

John is able to survey for protected mamals, BAP specices and invasive wildlife, this includes use of remote cameras and the collection of genetic materials.

Wildlife Tracking 

Species inventory

A general survey to find out what wildlife features might be in an area, be that for general interest, rare or protected wildlife or for invasive species. This service may be of use in identifying wildlife corridors and crossing points when considering the placement of roads, barriers and warning signs.

Deer impact assessment

This service relies on extensive knowledge of the tracks and signs of ungulate species and other species whose sign may be easily confused.  Impact surveys can be used to measure current levels of impact on a site and to monitor how impacts are changing with time. The methodology has been developed by the deer initiative and was originally based on the work of Dr A. Cooke. It is simple to apply but is also sensitive enough to give a broad description of deer impact, together with an indication of deer activity. It is usually used for general woodland assessment rather than for forestry crops. Deer impact assessment is extremely important when devising strategies to ensure the long-term health of woodland and other habitats.

Trailing

John has on occassion been called out to track and locate lost or escaped animals.
