Private and public sector organisations need to balance development plans with the 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.
Whether we are expanding an existing facility on undeveloped or developed land; extending a bridge, highway or rail line; building a new hydropower dam, or remediating potentially impacted ecological resources, clients count on us to provide solutions regarding the protection and restoration of natural resources and ecosystems.
Our ecological services cover all project stages, from initial constraint and option assessment, to project approval, biodiversity offsets and ecological management plans. Our ecological assessments are thorough and built on academic rigour and a practical understanding of legislative requirements.
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. With a robust knowledge of legislative requirements, ecology and biodiversity, we appreciate the range of issues affecting key stakeholders.
