Established in 2015, Manta Ecology provides a wide range of ecological services. Based in Wester Ross, we work throughout Scotland year round in all conditions and habitats, from urban brownfield sites to mountaintops! We work with conservation charities, government bodies, landowners, consultancies and local communities.

Manta Ecology Plant Swap Scheme

  • "Manta Ecology used stem treatment to kill a difficult and dense area of rhododendron bushes on our NTS landholding. I would highly endorse this method of controlling rhododendron and the use of Manta Ecology to carry out the control."

  • Rob Dewar (NTS Nature Conservation Adviser)
  • “Eamonn at Mantaecology did a very professional job for us and our clients, Balfour Beatty, as EnvCoW at the Caithness Cluster of substation construction projects and powerline upgrades – these projects require pragmatism and expertise in equal measure, and Eamonn delivered.”  

  • Dr Kathy Ader (Director, Northern Ecological Services)
  • “Our peatland restoration work with Manta Ecology has been well planned and executed. They have been professional and thorough and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”  

  • Dundonnell Estate, Wester Ross
  • “We used Manta Ecology to remove and replace R.Ponticum (Manta Ecology plant swap scheme) on our land. Great outcome. A very professional job, well executed as described in the plan, delighted with the outcome and replanting.”
