Ecology

The conservation and sustainable management of our biodiversity is a major challenge confronting our communities today.

Private- and public-sector organisations need to balance development plans with protection of our vegetation communities, animal, plant and habitat resources. External pressures on natural resources, including climate change, population growth and land use changes impact on developmental decisions that must be resolved within a strict legislative framework.

WSP provides a range of integrated services that aim to maintain or improve ecological values while offering sustainable solutions to ecological constraints.

Our ecological assessments are thorough and built on academic rigour and a practical understanding of legislative requirements. Our ecological services cover all project stages, from initial constraint and option assessment, to project approval, biodiversity offsets and ecological management plans.

As a multidisciplinary consultancy we integrate our ecology expertise with other environmental, engineering and geospatial disciplines. This provides our clients with solutions that address their broader project objectives. We understand what influences legislative requirements; we understand ecology and biodiversity; and we appreciate the range of issues affecting key stakeholders. This allows us to provide our clients with rigorous, independent advice and concrete solutions.

Our services include:

  • biodiversity survey and assessment
  • environmental auditing
  • due diligence
  • flora and fauna management plans
  • environmental and ecological planning approvals
  • ecological monitoring
  • biodiversity offsets
  • project management
  • stakeholder engagement
  • geographic information systems (GIS).
