Assistant Ecologist

Vicky King-Cline

When did you start TG?


Where did you join TG from?

I joined TG after studying for a Master’s in Ecology, Management and Restoration of the Natural Environment in Barcelona.

What is the main purpose of your role? Do you have any key specialisms?

As an Assistant Ecologist, I undertake ecological assessments – including habitat and protected species surveys – to inform land-use change, typically requiring planning applications. The role involves consultation with clients, planners and design teams to ensure projects are in line with local and national policy and legislation, as well as devising appropriate strategies to promote a positive outcome for biodiversity.

My favourite protected species surveys are the great crested newt surveys (despite the late nights and often very early starts!)

What are your interests? Hobbies? Fun facts?

Like most ecologists I spend a lot of time outdoors – hiking, volunteering at a botanical garden, carrying out bat box checks with my local bat group and most recently I have started caving at the weekends to help undertake hibernation roost counts!

I also play piano, go to ballet class and speak Spanish and Catalan.
