Skills and Expertise
The BTO has a wealth of experience in a range of disciplines relating to birds and other biodiversity, their habitats and the environmental factors that drive changes in their populations. State-of-the-art technology has allowed the BTO to identify previously unknown migration routes and to determine how birds interact with human developments as part of Environmental Impact Assessments.
