Wildthing is available to help, our Canterbury based experienced wildlife management consultants understand the construction process, are commercially aware and work very closely with the development team from pre-contract to post-maintenance.

Phil Bolton started Wildthing to preserve, conserve and restore natural environments throughout Canterbury, Kent and Sussex. His 28 years experience in wildlife management provides customers with a fast, flexible, and professional service combined with the reassurance of expert advice regarding all wildlife management issues.

Wildthing works to the ethical standards set out by CIRIA (Construction Industry Research & Information Association) CIRIA set out a 4 point plan;

AVOID - Disturbing the natural habitat and wildlife when developing land.

MITIGATE - Minimise the impact the development has on the natural habitat and wildlife. This can be done by moving the foot print of the building or if this is not possible by putting up bat boxes in another part of the site if bats are to be disturbed by the development.

COMPENSATE - Improve the habitat that was originally at the site of the development, for example by planting food plants such as hazelnut trees for dormice.

ENHANCE - For example, ensure hedgerows are connected to woodland to ensure wildlife can move safely between environments.


Wildthing's aim:

· Protect and conserve wildlife and the natural environment for the future generations of Canterbury, Kent and Sussex.

· To integrate the built and natural environments through pro-active partnerships between developer, architects and planners to produce wildlife friendly living spaces.
