Parker Conservation provides conservation, translocation, Southern Ocean ecosystem and ecological restoration services for management and research in natural and production landscapes

Parker Conservation is a small family business run by Kevin, Graham and Kalinka. We provide expertise in management and research in natural and production landscapes. Our particular specialties are as follows:

Conservation Translocations

We have been directly involved in more than 50 reintroductions of 8 species since 1999, 34 of which we have led. We provide a full spectrum of translocation services in New Zealand and internationally. This includes advising on the feasibility of translocation projects, planning and designing suitable methodologies, leading translocations and post-release monitoring.

Conservation Restoration Services

Effective and efficient conservation requires informed and considered planning. We write, review, conduct and advise on restoration and translocation plans, pest control, wildlife health screening and monitoring programmes for ecological restoration. We also provide training and workshops in ecological monitoring, particularly the safe capture, handling and sampling of birds.

Southern Ocean Ecosystems and Seabirds

Southern Ocean ecosystems pose a unique set of challenges. Many seabirds are impacted at sea by commercial fisheries and pollution, and a swathe of island species are affected by introduced mammals and plants. Given these threats, it is critical that accurate information informs conservation management.

Conservation Research

Scientific research is essential for effective conservation. Our research encompasses both conservation theory and practice with a focus on reintroduction biology and Southern Ocean ecosystems and seabirds. Our combined output includes more than 52 scientific publications along with extensive applied research for conservation management.

    mammals).
  • Surveying – we are experienced in locating and identifying NZ native flora and fauna.
  • We are certified bird handlers experienced in catching, processing and banding a wide range of
    species such as passerines (e.g. robins, tomtits and rifleman), parrots (e.g. kaka and kakariki),
    seabirds, kiwi and takahë.

    or large scale monitoring, control or eradication programmes).

Project Management and People Engagement

  • Preparation of strategic, management and operational plans including project restoration plans,
    species translocation plans, wildlife handling/monitoring permits and Standard Operating
    Procedures.
  • Project management (ranging from ‘starting up’ advice through to complete project
    management, we will guide the process to ensure an agreed outcome is achieved).
  • Community and volunteer engagement (e.g. facilitating or running training programmes for
    individuals or community groups including wildlife monitoring and predator trapping).
  • Nature education – we can facilitate and/or lead nature education programmes for all ages.
