Moa’s Ark Research can design, implement and analyse monitoring programmes to suit your requirements. Whether you want to monitor threatened plants, pest mammals, native birds or lizards, we can help. We use a wide range of monitoring tools including artificial retreats for lizards, automated acoustic recorders for birds, and tracking tunnels for pest mammals. Monitoring programmes are designed using the latest information on best practice methods and to maximise efficiency. We will ensure monitoring intensity is sufficient to detect changes, while minimising resources required.


Moa’s Ark Research provides advice to ensure sound ecological principles are applied to conservation and restoration of native biodiversity. We incorporate the latest research findings into practical advice for biodiversity management. Whether you’re looking to manage a threatened species, protect native biodiversity or restore natural habitat, we can give advice or develop ecological management plans to suit your needs.
