Past Projects

  • Green Infrastructure projects for Pembrokeshire Nature Partnership - bringing biodiversity into urban areas.

  • Lichen Survey and the development of Common Standards Monitoring programs for Natural Resources Wales at Ty Canol National Nature Reserve (NNR). Including monitoring of the Epiphytic Lichen Assemblages and a number of independently qualifying lichen species.

  •  Marsh Fritillary Habitat Mapping Project. Mapping the habitat quality for a meta-population of this European Protected Species in north Pembrokeshire on behalf of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. 

  • A summary report of 20 years of  conservation land management and habitat restoration at Yerbeston Tops Special Area of Conservation for Natural Resources Wales. Detailing the work that has taken place to enhance the marshy grasslands here for the Marsh Fritillary Butterfly, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the methods used and to give confidence to others considering restoration works on similar sites.

  • Future Land Use Assessment for National Trust Cymru. A survey and report to identify possible ways that NTC could develop land use on an estate in Pembrokeshire, in response to the climate emergency and consequent loss of wildlife. The project identified the historical and existing habitats on the estate and assessed how these would develop under an extensive, naturalistic grazing regime within a land management system driven largely by natural processes.
