Applied Ecology Pty Ltd is an Australian environmental consultancy company working across NSW.

Who We Are

Applied Ecology Pty Ltd was formed in 2009. The AE team previously consulted for an ecology and design business in the Sydney basin and surrounding areas. When that was sold the entire Sydney team formed Applied Ecology Pty Ltd to continue our relationship with existing clients and expand our business. We soon established a new office in Bathurst, as we are committed to working in western and regional NSW, whilst maintaining a strong presence in the Sydney basin and Blue Mountains.We are passionate about providing good environmental outcomes and practical solutions for our valued clients. Our directors have over 60 years of combined industry experience and have worked together with our clients on numerous projects over many  years. We are constantly seeking to improve and refine the way we do things. Staff are actively encouraged and supported to undertake further training, post graduate study and independent research.[button text=”read more-research and publications” link=”publications/” style=”default” size=”normal” target=”_self” display=”inline” icon=”no”][clear]
