Case Studies

The following case studies showcase Ecosulis's broad range of skills, expertise and experience.

Wild Ennerdale, Lake District

Posted on 09/27/2018

Project brief

Ecosulis was asked by the Wild Ennerdale Partnership to assess the impact of passive rewilding on local biodiversity (passive rewilding allows natural processes such as natural grazing, erosion and flooding to reshape landscapes which then require minimal human intervention).

Aylesbeare Common Reserve, Devon

Posted on 09/27/2018

Project brief

Ecosulis was commissioned to assess the impact of management techniques on the Aylesbeare Common Reserve, using its Biodiversity Quality Calculator. This assessment will aid reserve managers in future decision making.

Kennington Park, London

Posted on 09/27/2018

Project brief

Ecosulis was commissioned to assess Kennington Park from a biodiversity and health perspective, and then devise and implement a new park design.

Bristol Water Landholdings

Posted on 09/27/2018

Project brief

Ecosulis was asked to measure biodiversity in different landholding areas. Our Habitat Valuation Calculator was used to establish an ecological baseline, enabling sites to be compared and ranked according to their habitat value. This will benefit decision making regarding future site management and ecological projects.

Attenborough Nature Reserve

Posted on 05/16/2018

Project brief

Ecosulis was commissioned to contribute to the development of a natural flood alleviation scheme that involved the installation of floating reedbeds. Drone surveys, GIS mapping and biodiversity assessments using the Biodiversity Quality Calculator were undertaken after reed planting and translocation took place. The new habitat created has since been colonised by bittern.
