Habitat Creation

Design and construct habitats...

Do you need a specific habitat for a protected species?

If you need to construct specific habitats for protected species to fulfil planning requirements or enhance biodiversity, here at JPR Environmental, we have the skills to do this work. We have the resources and equipment to design and construct specific habitats based on our clients’ needs, locations, and the species present.


Our staff have many years of experience working with protected species including great crested newts, slow worms, badgers, water voles and crayfish to name a few. We are highly proficient at creating ponds, scrapes, swales, wildlife corridors, hibernacula and wildlife fencing to ensure the targeted species can flourish. 

Enhancing biodiversity

JPR are experts in the provision of new, or the extension of existing ecosystems with the aim of enhancing biodiversity and the associated benefits that come from that.

We can manage your habitat creation project including the restoration or creation of valuable habitats and install features on site for use by protected species.  


Specifically, we can advise on, manage, and carry out the following habitat creation works:

We can evaluate and interpret your needs, work out a plan of action and provide ongoing, practical management of the site.  We have the experience, plant, and equipment to carry out the required earthworks or supervise other contractors. We work collaboratively with other contractors on site and have built relationships over the years with other suppliers and contractors to cover all aspects of a project.

Discuss creating a habitat now

Why is habitat creation so important?

We have heard a lot recently about the loss of habitat in the UK – some 90% of UK wetlands have been destroyed in the last 100 years for example.  

Wetlands are the most effective carbon sinks on the planet and provide food and habitat for 40% of the world’s plants and animals. Establishing functional habitats for certain species allows both the organisms and the environment to progress in a mutually beneficial way. Creating habitat to increase biodiversity is not only beneficial to the environment but can be a planning requirement for development. Connectivity through habitats is a vital aspect of this, where proper project management can allow for multiple species to thrive in one area.
