A selection of images from our work on protected species

Ecologists spend a lot of time looking at the ground. This is not due to depression but because they are seeking out the next interesting plant species or searching for scats which is often the nearest they get to their target species. We have included some images in our Scat Gallery so we can share this activity with a wider audience. We also use cameras as part of our protected species work and include some camera trap images of holes in the ground which are another preoccupation of Ecologists illustrating how a range of species can utilise the same structures, for example foxes, badgers and otters.
