Habitat Monitoring

What is habitat monitoring?

A good habitat monitoring programme allows you to closely survey trends and challenges within the land that you manage. You’ll be empowered to mitigate issues as they arise.

The importance of habitat monitoring

When you manage land, issues often don’t reveal themselves until it’s too late. This can lead to significant challenges, such as environmental issues, grazing problems, crop and soil problems, and ultimately, a loss of commercial viability.

Habitat monitoring allows you to identify existing issues and emerging threats, so that you can quickly respond. 

How we can help

We can help to monitor deer populations, crop and vegetation quality, soil quality and environmental changes, amongst other factors. 

To make sure our habitat monitoring service is valuable to you, we’ll discuss your goals at length, ensuring that we capture meaningful data.

How does it work?

We use several methods to monitor habitats, including in-person assessments using quadrats and photographic monitoring systems. 

While there are a number of factors that we check for during our monitoring process, some typical examples include an assessment of the mosses present in grass and wetlands, checking shrub heights and identifying animal tracks. 

The combined approach will give you an immediate understanding of any issues facing your land and their implications.
