Did you know

The Great Crested Newt (GCN) is the largest native newt that is found in the UK. Previously a common species that many people remember finding in backyard ponds, but the populations have declined in recent years and is now a rare species across Europe and are now strictly protected.

GCN actually only uses ponds for breeding and spend most of the year outside of water where the surrounding habitat is important for hunting and resting grounds for the newt. The GCN is a top predator and will eat most things that it can fit in its mouth, that happens to walk by.

GCN can be found in a variety of habitats and even in urban ponds where they may not be expected.

Wildwood Ecology can offer both traditional methods of surveying for GCN, along with novel environmental DNA surveys. Contact us now for a tailored quote.
