Caledonian Conservation

Based in Scotland, Caledonian Conservation Ltd provides a range of ecology and ornithology services for development and conservation in the UK. We also provide a range of environmental education and training services.  We are proud to have been awarded the NBN Trust John Sawyer Award in 2016, recognising our dedication to openly sharing data (within legal and commercial restrictions) - this reflects our commitment to benefit people and wildlife (click here for more information about the award).

Through experience gained working for Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Local Authority we are able to identify the optimal and most cost effective approach to any site, benefiting both the client and local ecology.
