She regularly undertakes habitat suitability assessments for great crested newts, subsequently providing advice to clients on potential ecological constraints. She also regularly operates as an ecological clerk of work in relation to great crested newts. Natalie has good experience of reptile translocation works and reptile handling. She has a sound understanding of current wildlife legislation and planning policy guidance and prepares technical reports to provide advice on potential ecological issues with regards to project proposals.
Prior to joining BSG Ecology, Natalie graduated in Zoology (University of Wales Swansea 2004) and Wildlife Management and Conservation (Reading University 2005). Research for her MSc thesis involved species identification of aquatic invertebrates from Woodwalton Fen NNR. Natalie has volunteered for her local Wildlife Trust, gaining experience in practical habitat management, livestock management and participating in National Vegetation Classification Surveys. Between her MSc and working at BSG, Natalie undertook six months of travelling through Central America. During this time, she volunteered for Project Golden Frog in Panama, an initiative set up in response to the spread of the amphibious disease Chytridiomycosis.
