Lincoln has been working as an ecologist and eco-masterplanner in environmental consultancy, academic research and for wildlife NGOs for nearly 25 years, and has a particular interest in urban ecology and design. Lincoln has worked on many large-scale residential and development projects both in the UK and overseas. He is especially interested in finding new and innovative ways of integrating biodiverse green infrastructure into an increasingly densified urban realm. In this regard his recent article 'The Case for High-Density Compact Cities' has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2017 CIEEM In Practice Award category.
Lincoln has also worked on various ecotourism projects in the tropics and sub-tropics, including: an ecotourism and conservation strategy for Endau Rompin, Peninsular Malaysia's second largest National Park; an ecotourism and conservation masterplan for Sentosa Island, a large island resort off Singapore; and a cross-border Ramsar/wetland twinning strategy on behalf of the Governments of Malaysia and Singapore. In the UK Lincoln has recently led on major eco-leisure developments on former quarry sites in Dorset and Devon.
Lincoln also routinely undertakes Ecological Impact Assessment, Habitat Regulations Assessment, and protected species survey and licensing for a wide range of development types.
