Ecology

“Human use, population, and technology have reached that certain stage where mother Earth no longer accepts our presence with silence.” - Dalai Lama XIV

Environmental issues are becoming more prevalent throughout New Zealand and as a result environmental considerations are an important part of many projects and activities involving our people and communities.

Having an understanding of ecological values, services, risks and impacts is integral to the success of what you’re doing, whether you’re a Government or non-Government organisation, in Council, or part of a private enterprise.

Tonkin + Taylor (T+T) has a dedicated team of over 30 ecological experts working throughout New Zealand covering Terrestrial Ecology, Freshwater and Aquatic Ecology and Marine and Coastal Ecology environments.

We couple our breadth of experience with our close relationships with environmental regulatory authorities to offer pragmatic solutions with positive environmental outcomes.

Whether you have consenting or compliance requirements, need strategic technical advice, or some clever problem solving, we can help you bring your project plans to life.
