New staff for 2020


With our busy survey season fast approaching, Direct Ecology has welcomed two new members to the team.

Valentina Nardone joins us as a bat specialist.  Whilst undertaking her PhD in Naples, she also worked as a scientific researcher in biodiversity and conservation at the University of Naples, with a specialism in bat ecology leading to several publications.

Cróna McMonagle has worked in the environmental sector for 5 years, including the last 3 in consultancy.  She has a wide range of ecological experience, from bats to butterflies to birds.

We’re delighted to have both Valentina and Cróna on-board.
