Ecological Assessment of Effects (AEE)


AB Ecology Ltd is well experienced in the area of ecological assessments of effects for both large and small scale projects. We have experience in urban and rural subdivision; infrastructure, development; stream works, discharges and abstractions.

We use a variety of scientific methodologies (see services) to help quantify effects of a given activity and determine options for avoidance, remedy or mitigation. Our comprehensive technical reports are tailored to provide robust information to support applications for activities requiring a resource consent.   

Using in-house knowledge and our associate networks, AB Ecology can provide ecological support from project conception right through to expert advice and evidence for Environment Court hearings.
