Naturally Wild: Teesside’s ecology experts

Stockton-based ecological and environmental consultancy Naturally Wild insists it is committed to retaining its headquarters on Teesside despite boasting large-scale contracts across the country with such major operators as Network Rail and Highways England.

Set up in 1996 by Julie and Graeme Skinner, Naturally Wild has been providing ecological services to clients across the country on a wide variety of challenging work with protected species and habitats.

The firm’s small team of highly skilled ecologists – each with their own area of expertise – has worked on a number of significant Teesside projects including the Wynyard Park development, surveys for Grade II-listed Stokesley Manor house as well as working on a major renewable project in Teesmouth.

And they recently completed important ecological services during the large-scale restoration of Whitley Bay’s former tourist hotspot, the Spanish City. But despite Naturally Wild’s most significant work being based in the South-East and South-West, director and company founder Graeme insists the firm will stay true to its roots.

“A number of our biggest clients are based in the South of England and we’re proud of those major contracts,” said Graeme. “But we’re passionate about Teesside and want to continue to build our business here.

“We were previously based in the South for five years, with offices in Fareham and Salisbury, but we returned to our roots here on Teesside and we’re committed to remaining here. We’ve already proved that the distance has no effect on our ability to deliver a quality service on time.”

The firm’s work isn’t all bat surveys and ecological site assessments, as they have an active outreach programme with groups such as York’s Askham Bryan College and local natural history groups as well as delivering professional photography Whatever your ecological needs – from protected species surveys to preliminary ecological assessments and advice on local species – Naturally Wild offer a bespoke, tailored service based on quality and integrity to suit every project.
