EP Ecology Gains Certification to ISO 9001, 14001, and 45001 Standards

The EP Ecology team have been working hard over the last 18 months to make changes to the way we operate and manage our business. We’ve changed how we manage the quality of our deliverables, how we manage our environmental impact, and how we ensure the health and safety of our team and our contractors […]

Art in Nature

Nothing clears away the cobwebs of the festive period like a walk in the woods. It was on a particularly wet and drizzly walk at Muiravonside Country Park that I stumbled upon a real treat, which made me stop and think about art and nature. Tramping the muddy path (with dog in tow) from the […]

Our New Years Resolution: Improve our Sustainability

Well, 2023 is here. 2022 came and went almost in the blink of an eye. It was fun though, the team grew from two to five and our projects were varied and covered the entirety of Scotland from Thurso to Jedburgh… but what’s next for EP Ecology? We’ve decided that this year we’re going to […]

Dùthchas: appreciating nature (the ancient way)

I recently returned from a weekend away with friends up north, in the glorious highlands – the Cairngorms. It was exciting, as I had not escaped the congested central belt for some time. Being mid-November, I did think the trip might be cold and miserable, as I am a wuss when it comes to the […]

Freelance Ecologists and Bat Surveyors Required

Due to an expanding workload, EP Ecology needs to increase our pool of associate freelance ecologists throughout Scotland. We’re looking for freelancers who are set up with their own insurances and equipment to assist with a number of surveys (primarily bat emergence and re-entry surveys) across the central belt of Scotland, with bat survey projects currently ongoing […]

One Year Old Today…

Sorry, I’ve been very quiet lately, this is for good reasons – I’ve been spectacularly busy! So busy in fact that I nearly missed this milestone. EP Ecology turns one year old today, Wednesday 9th June 2021 (we didn’t technically start trading until July, but we registered in June). What a year it’s been! In June 2020, […]

EP Ecology Starts Carbon Offsetting

Thrilled to announce that as of this month, EP Ecology is a member of Ecologi, a carbon-offsetting programme which plants trees globally. Our trees will be planted in forests throughout the world, including right here in Scotland. The way this venture works is by using funds from businesses to buy and plant trees for projects where they’re needed […]

Froggy Friday

Next week, I’ll be talking about a project I’ve worked on for a decade now at the ARG-UK 2021 AGM. Obviously I won’t give too much away in this blog because spoilers are bad. However, I thought I’d talk a bit about the humble common frog, and summarise some of the work I’ve done on this […]

Happy New Year from EP Ecology

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Over the course of the holiday break, I had a bit of a fiddle about with some of the settings on the website. Needless to say I broke it, so we were offline for the best part of a week. I think we’re back again but things might not be […]

Coronavirus: Level 4 Restrictions Update

With the news breaking yesterday that First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has taken the decision to place eleven counties in Scotland under Level 4 Coronavirus restrictions including South Lanarkshire, where EP Ecology is based, I thought perhaps a little update on how we are working. So, level 4 restrictions do facilitate continued construction and outdoor working, which includes […]
