HiDef carry out and present data from aerial wildlife surveys to ensure sustainable developments, such as wind farms, consider the natural environment, both on land and at sea, providing full environmental consultancy to companies throughout their project.
The HiDef team has grown significantly over the years. We have many members of our staff located across the country, not just at our base in Cumbria. This has enabled us to perform wildlife surveys and provide our consultancy services nationwide and overseas.
We also have a network of over twenty trusted sub-contractors to support our core team. This extended network allows HiDef the capacity to undertake work at short notice across the country. These partners have been specifically selected based on their expertise and our extensive experience. We only work with partners who share our enthusiasm, attention to detail and desire to deliver a successful product.
Here at HiDef we’ve developed a great reputation for high quality work, and this has been underpinned by internationally certified QA processes, this gives our clients even greater confidence in the work we do.
As part of our dedicated team, we have experts skilled in flight operations and data management, as well as the quality assurance, analysis and presentation of ecological data, obtained from our wildlife surveys. These aspects combine to bring an informed approach to data storage, analysis and presentation.
Our expert review and identification team includes some of Europe’s leading ornithologists and marine mammal biologists, and our best-in-class detection and identification rates have been proven through industry studies.
We collect data via aerial wildlife surveys, which we then interpret, plot, analyse, map and model to present in industry leading formats. We can take you through the environmental challenges of the development process, from start to finish, and foresee and mitigate these challenges and obstacles.
