With constant changes in wildlife law in the UK, professional ecologists are becoming increasingly in demand by developers, architects, land managers and land owners to give specialist advice on wildlife. There has never been a better time to get into this fascinating career. If you have a passion for wildlife and love the outdoors then this could be the career for you. A professional ecologist advises many disciplines on wildlife issues and gets involved in projects of all sizes from new motorways to housing developments, habitat creation and wildlife enhancement. This book gives you an insight into the world of a consultant ecologist, guides you through the skills, knowledge and experience you need, and how to acquire them, and ideas on how to prepare yourself for that first job as a trainee ecological consultant.
