NatureMapr is excited to partner with Canberra consulting company Capital Ecology to support citizen science and high-quality ecological assessment in the ACT.

Capital Ecology is a Canberra based consulting company providing expert ecological advice and assessment services in the ACT and surrounds. Capital Ecology works with both the public and private sectors to facilitate and encourage the integration of effective threatened species and ecological community assessment and monitoring into development planning, conservation, and land management practices.

“We are pleased to partner with and support the important service that NatureMapr provides to our community and to nature conservation in our region” said Robert Speirs, Capital Ecology’s Director / Principal Ecologist.

“NatureMapr has become a vital resource for our work, providing high-quality, expert-moderated ecological data which informs and supports the assessments and advice we provide. The contribution of citizen scientists to ecological knowledge is incredibly valuable, assisting us to better advise our private and government clients in making planning decisions which maximise the protection of our threatened species and ecosystems.”

This partnership with Capital Ecology reinforces the important role that citizen-supplied, expert verified environmental data plays as an input into the environmental assessment process.

NatureMapr is proud to be working with Rob and the team at Capital Ecology going forward.
