Who are we?
Kane Ecology is a leading ecological consultancy established in 2013 and based in Northern Ireland. We provide a range of ecological consultancy services across the country, with a focus on high-quality surveys and assessments. We provide mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services, which can be tailored to your needs. And the professional training courses we offer are designed to optimise learning by combining theory and practice.
We provide ecological surveys and assessments that may be needed for planning applications and conservation. Whilst we specialise in bat surveys, we conduct surveys and assessments for all species and habitats. The ecological survey methods required by planners and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) are available here.
What sets us apart from the rest?
Our friendly ecologists are professionally qualified, with a wealth of experience. Their knowledge of wildlife legislation and the planning process in Northern Ireland saves our clients time and money.
What’s even better? We GUARANTEE* all our surveys will meet the required standards. This means that costly delays to your project can be avoided. We conduct all our work in accordance with best practice guidelines:
- The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) Guidelines;
- The British Standard (BS) 42020:2013;
- The Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) Survey Guidelines;
- And all relevant NIEA survey requirements.
We always aim to provide the highest quality of service and we never stop trying to improve! Kane Ecology offers pragmatic, cost-effective solutions to make the process as painless as possible. Our dedication to the highest standards of professional integrity, skill and diligence underpins everything that we do.
