Parker Conservation is a small family business run by Kevin, Graham and Kalinka. We provide expertise inĀ management and research in natural and production landscapes. Our particular specialties are as follows:
We have been directly involved in more than 50 reintroductions of 8 species since 1999, 34 of which we haveĀ 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.
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.
