Ecosulis have been appointed on a three year framework with the Environment Agency as an extension to the Midlands Landscape Framework that Ecosulis are appointed under. The work is to create and manage habitat at Attenborough Lakes Site of Special Scientific Interest near Nottingham. Twelve sites within the 300ha SSSI will be managed to ensure that a mosaic of reedbed, wet meadow, scrub and woodland habitat is maintained at favourable conservation status.

RYA qualified powerboat operators and experienced bird handlers will be surveying the reedbed areas that have been enclosed in goose exclusion fencing, to ensure birds do not become trapped.
