BUILDING A NEW CONCEPT OF NATURE
SKUA Development is the division that deals with wilderness development in all related aspects, from direct construction of facilities to employee training. SKUA Development operates in all areas associated with SKUA Nature, from the Arctic in Norway to areas in southern Spain.
To operate in such a wide range of situations, the only applicable method is that of a specific study for each area, to which specific solutions for each need are then applied. In its work, the team is in close contact with the natural areas and the animals that live there throughout the year. As a result, staff have a basic work ethic of minimizing disturbance to wildlife species and promoting their protection as much as possible.
To achieve this, work is organized to respect seasonal cycles as much as possible, solutions with minimal environmental impact are preferred, and the used tools are battery-powered which allow to work with low noise emissions.
The team working on this project is composed of people with different technical, photographic and scientific experience and skills. This creates a team of professionals who are familiar with all the aspects we can work with and who share a passion for nature
BE A PART OF THE NETWORK
SKUA Nature is a world leader in the development and management of natural areas. Our international experience allows us to identify the right strengths to develop projects that have all the necessary characteristics to gain access to the main wildlife tourism networks. Thanks to our many years of experience in the field, we know nature and wildlife very well. This is of course necessary to know, for example, how, where and when to build a new hide to photograph a particular species, and what are the target species for each country.
Our work does not consist “only” in the construction of hides, but in the creation of a whole system, from the first exploration of the territory to the creation of a solid long-term business plan, from the construction or renovation of special facilities for this type of tourism to the training of personnel, from advertising and marketing through international fairs and contacts with the main worldwide tour operators of this market to the management of tourist groups, from the creation of ad hoc promotional material (website, brochures, etc.) to the administrative office, the technical team and much more.
In all our activities, SKUA naturally puts the welfare of wildlife first. We are all naturalists, biologists and conservationists, so we are always aware that we NOT must in some way affect the delicate balance of nature. Our attention is always very high in this regard and when dealing with wildlife we all have to be extremely careful.
