Ecology Studies

LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES offer a wide range of regional terrestrial ecology and marine ecology services. With extensive knowledge of rare and/or protected habitats and species, LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES will ensure that the correct survey and impact assessment methodology is employed for each project in order that it meets international standards and regulations.

Terrestrial Ecology

LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES have extensive experience in undertaking Terrestrial Ecology Surveys throughout the Middle East. LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES utilise a variety of survey techniques including;

  • Day and night surveys
  • Specialised trapping programmes
  • Camera traps

By ensuring that all staff are up to date on international, regional and local legislation, each project is carefully planned to meet the required legal guidelines and ensure that there are no delays. In ensuring that suitable baseline data is obtained, we are able to provide site and project specific mitigation recommendations in order to help preserve and protect the local environment.

Marine Ecology

LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES aims to provide holistic data sets through the parallel use of remote technology and on-site surveys. Up-to-date knowledge of modern survey techniques ensures that we tailor every project to the needs of both the client and the environment. LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES also has the ability to design and implement water quality sampling programmes for a variety of situations using both in-situ and ex-situ techniques.

Our team of qualified field scientists have wide ranging experience in conducting benthic, epibenthic, fisheries, planktonic and marine mammal studies at sites spanning the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf. Our survey work is conducted on a variety of platforms ranging from our purpose built intertidal hovercrafts to state of the art offshore survey vessels. We also operate our own coastal survey vessel equipped for a range of environmental survey requirements.

LEAF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES is uniquely positioned to be able to combine both detailed survey work with comprehensive impact assessment. Our impact assessment tools include, amongst others, the highly sophisticated range of MIKE marine modelling systems providing an effective combination of local field expertise with powerful desktop oceanographic simulation techniques.
