About Landscape Ecology NZ Ltd
We are a specialised consultancy with extensive experience in the planning, design and management of natural areas and ecosystems in New Zealand and in the South East Asian region. Our projects range from residential garden design using native New Zealand plants, to broad scale landscape planning in urban, rural and natural environments.

Our team is passionate about restoring ecosystem functions across New Zealand landscapes, and we recognise that even small projects play an important role in managing our special biodiverity. However as well as restoring biodiversity values, we also understand that our clients often have a strong desire to manage and improve other values such as their property's aesthetics, and economic viability of production landscapes such as farms and plantations. 

We believe what sets our company aside from most others is the unique mix of academic and practical/hands-on experience our staff have. We all have extensive experience in forest, waterway and wetland restoration, and all have specialist expertise in wildlife research and monitoring. We posess valuable and relevant tertiary qualifications (ranging from undergraduate to PhD level) in our specialist fields including amenity/environmental horticulture, landscape architecture, forest science, wildlife research and management, geography, and sociology/rural development. 

As well as an extensive track record of ecosystem restoration projects locally, our staff have diverse experience working with government departments, NGO's, resource managers and local communities in the South East Asian region, including East and West Malaysia, Java, Sumatra and also the Solomon Islands.  
 
We look forward to discussing the specific needs of your project with you soon.
