Unmanaged human use of natural resources is resulting in increasing degradation of marine ecosystems. Sustainable development demands that biodiversity decline is addressed.
ABPmer provides a range of specialist conservation advice across the UK and overseas to nature conservation bodies operating in the marine environment. We have particular skills in developing practical mitigation and compensation measures for project developments required under international regulations such as the Habitats and Birds Directives.
We are practiced in helping to secure agreements with stakeholders for the development of legally-enforceable mitigation and monitoring programmes. Such work includes selecting, designing and assessing the impacts of newly created coastal habitat as a compensation requirement.
