Ecology

Our Ecology Team is comprised of experienced environmental scientists, botanists and ecologists. We maintain long standing affiliations with a range of experts in plant taxonomy, zoology, arboriculture, bushfire management, dieback interpretation and endemic plant horticulture as part of providing a unique multidisciplinary service.

Our personnel have worked on a wide range of land development/property, resource sector and natural area management projects across Western Australia, and in particular we have extensive experience within the Perth Metropolitan, South West, Pilbara and Kimberley regions.
