The year started with the launch of one of our largest native woodland planting projects this year. As part of the Gatwick Airport Flood Alleviation Scheme, Ecosulis’ HCEC Team were asked to conduct a five-year habitat creation and maintenance program for the Environment Agency in Crawley. Our task for the first phase of works in 2016, was to plant over 4,500 trees and shrubs to create a new woodland habitat that would be beneficial to the Dormice that have been found in adjacent woodland around the site.
Hedgehog awareness week kicks off this week and the Ecological Consulting Team at Ecosulis are helping to spread the word!
The British Hedgehog Preservation Society are running Hedgehog Awareness Week for another year, and this time it is focusing on strimming and garden machinery. Every year hundreds of hedgehogs are injured or killed as a result of coming into contact with machinery. You can help prevent this simply by checking areas for hedgehogs before using machines!
