Paul has been an ecological consultant since 2000, working in both small and large organisations, until he set up my own consultancy (Skyline Ecology) based in the Peak District National Park (UK) in 2013. The majority of Paul's consultancy work relates to bats, with a specific focus on tree dwelling bats and bat sound analysis. This interest in bat calls and sounds has developed through an ongoing relationship with Wildlife Acoustics who Paul works with and for as part of his consultancy work. Paul's passion for acoustic work has led to amazing international projects such as educational projects in Kenya and Zambia, part funded by Wildlife Acoustics.
Paul currently run online training courses for Wildlife Acoustics, assisting people from all over the world on how to use bat call analysis software and hardware in order for individuals to enhance and diversify their research methods and skills. In addition, he also trains people in recording and analysing data for lots of other wildlife aside from bats, for example birds, amphibians, other mammals and even underwater organisms in some cases such as dolphins, whales and fishes. This work has now developed into an interest in bioacoustics/ecoacoustics in general and he now creates and produces soundscape recordings for both scientific and artistic purposes.
