Ecosulis Ltd
Ecosulis specialises in technology-empowered nature restoration. Underpinned by cutting-edge technology, pioneering science-based consultancy and 30 years of expertise, we’re making rewilding commercially viable. We work with landowners to produce nature recovery strategies, assess natural capital, and build and enhance assets that can generate value for people and nature. This can help to create ecosystem services, combat climate change and create revenue opportunities from emerging nature-based markets and enterprises. The Ecosulis Innovation Team have developed metrics to assess ecosystem function. These enable landowners to take stock of their assets and make informed decisions on business and land use. They are tools that can measure, verify and tell the story of ecological change for public funding and private investment. Acting in context and being pragmatic is key for us. We incorporate local voices, knowledge, traditions, industries and skills into processes of landscape recovery.
