Naturally Wild Consultants Ltd was created by Graeme and Julie Skinner in 1998 and has grown from a partnership into a fast-paced expanding company. Whether you need an expert bat survey, a badger survey or just to find out about venomous reptiles, Naturally Wild are the leaders in the field. Over the last 20 years, Graeme has endeavoured to build a company based on ethical values, expert knowledge and a passion for the environment and its inhabitants.
Naturally Wild’s approach aims to deliver overall value and quality along with openness and integrity. The team have continued to service our major clients and have been on a variety of other projects around the country with badger work in Gloucester, BREAAM work in Cornwall, newts have featured in Teesside and Wiltshire, reptiles in Dorset and bats have also been a large part of our work across the UK. Based in Stockton-on-Tees, the company now boasts long-term contracts with Taylor Wimpey in the South-West and South-East of England, whilst also carrying out work for a major company servicing Network Rail contacts in the two southern regions.
In the North-East, Naturally Wild recently carried out ecological surveys for PD Ports and have also conducted extensive ecological survey work ahead of construction commencing on a new large-scale renewable energy plant on the north banks of the River Tees. Naturally Wild was also contracted to carry out ecological surveys ahead of the redevelopment of the former Spanish City amusement park in Whitley Bay, as well as the site of new housing developments in Hartlepool, Eaglescliffe and the site of the former Tall Trees night club near Yarm. Being a forward-thinking company we have teamed up with a CAA approved drone specialist allowing us to undertake HD and UHD videos of projects.
