Ecology New Zealand is a leading provider of professional ecological services throughout New Zealand. Our focus is on providing our government and private sector clients with the ecological expertise required to meet RMA requirements as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
We have particularly strong expertise in assessing and managing the environmental effects of land and infrastructure development from small-scale subdivisions up to roading projects of national significance.
The Ecology NZ team is led by Simon Chapman – a Principal ecologist with 20 years of experience as a professional ecology consultant. Simon has been involved in some of New Zealand’s largest and most complex projects including Mt Messenger, Transmission Gully, SH1 Puhoi to Warkworth and City Rail Link. Simon's abilities as a team leader and business/project manager are well proven, and his technical expertise is demonstrated by the strong demand for his skills as a peer reviewer and as an expert ecologist for council, EPA and Environment Court hearings.
Our expertise in standard ecological matters such as vegetation, birds, streams and wetlands is second to none but we also cover highly specialised requirements such as lizards, bats, frogs and invertebrates.
