Wetlands and waterways services
We can care for our natural assets by ensuring wetlands and waterways are clean and habitable. Whether it’s a restoration project, a new planting or controlling over-abundant vegetation or plant pests, our expertise ensures these assets thrive for generations.
Plant identification skills in wetland ecosystems.
Identifying natural wetlands and applying significance criteria to identify significant areas for purposes of identification in the regional plan (schedule of significant wetlands).
Utilising science-based wetland indicators to monitor the condition of palustrine wetlands, including vegetation ordinations, soil assessments, hydrological monitoring (including designing and installing groundwater monitoring wells).
Accurately delineating wetlands by assessing vegetation types (obligative, facultative species), soils, and localised hydrology for numerous riverine and palustrine wetlands.
Developing constructed wetland planting designs for eutrophic systems.
Our team is adept in coastal environments, and have experience in:
Plant identification and vegetation mapping in coastal ecosystems.
Developing restoration planting plans for dune, back dune, estuarine margins, and intertidal zones.
Developing a seasonal migratory bird monitoring programme.
Participating in a stakeholder consultation process to identify coastal areas with significant conservation values in relation to nesting and migratory birds.
