Welcome to LCECO

Lindsay Carrington Ecological Services Ltd is an independent ecological consultancy based in Dorset. The practice was established in 2002 on a sound conservation and commercial consultancy basis. Since then, our company has expanded and our expert ecologists have the skills and experience to carry out a complete range of ecological projects. The expertise of our ecologists is built on an ongoing involvement in ecological research and voluntary survey work.

Much of our work involves a wide range of development projects and over time, our company has built up a reputation for reliable and cost-effective work. Provision of consistent and high quality advice is important to us and our clients return time after time to reuse our ecological services.

Announcement

It is with deepest regret that we inform you of the recent passing of one of our valuable members of staff Ben Grasby. Ben moved from Hull and joined the company in 2015 undertaking a variety of surveys from phase 1 bat survey, reptile surveys, amphibian survey and ecological clerk of works. His passion was with amphibians and reptiles and he had recently completed a series of great created newt surveys where he was supervised taking the lead and was close to obtaining his own personal great created newt licence. Ben had a great way with clients and always wanted to see a project through from the start to finish. He was able to liaise with clients in a professional manor and was an asset to the company.

Our thoughts go out to his family and Ben will be sorely missed by all his colleagues at LCES.

Caroline AnneI've never seen an otter in real life and it's one of the things I'd really love to do.

A lot of our staff undertake voluntary surveys in their spare time, from bat harp trapping and box checks, rare reptile surveys to dormice checks. When you get something as cute as these little dormice babies it makes giving up your weekend a lot easier :)
