Dr Greg Carson


Prior to setting up Ecology Network, Greg spent 3 years as an Associate at WYG Environment, overseeing the London and south ecology teams.  As well as managing the service and project delivery, he contributed to the metamorphosis of a unified UK ecology service from discreet cost-centre based offices.


From 1996 to 2006, Greg worked as the County Ecologist for a unitary authority in Wales.  His day-to-day role of galvanising ecologically benign development through the planning system and taking forward the local biodiversity action plan process, was supplemented by strategic work for the Wales Biodiversity Partnership and activity on behalf of the Association of Local Government Ecologists.  His work was strongly focussed on policy and legislation, and included a number of successful legal challenges.


During the early 90's, Greg worked for The Wildlife Trusts, leading on Earth Heritage and minerals issues.  He was involved in a number of campaigns and spear headed a consortium of NGOs in legal action which led to the safeguard of Carmel Woods, South Wales.


Greg sits on the UK Great Crested Newt Steering Group and the Advisory Forum of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management.  He holds survey licences for bats, dormice, water voles, otters and great crested newts throughout England and Wales.  Greg is also CSCS compliant, holds a PTS card (renewal pending) and holds a certificate for the Responsible and Effective Control of Commensal Rodents.  Ecology Network is a CIEEM Registered Practice.


Ecology Network is linked with Strix, a consultancy based in Portugal and working internationally, specialising in ecological impact of wind energy related development.
