The resilience of the natural world is astonishing, but care is needed to avoid damage. With the right approach nature can even benefit from interventions.
Nature is increasingly reminding us of our dependence on healthy ecosystems. Human developments can alter this balance, and even small changes can have large effects with long-term consequences.
If species diversity decreases, the resilience of the ecosystem decreases. In a rapidly changing climate that's exactly what we don't want. But with the right approach, both nature and humans can benefit from the right interventions.
Ecology and ecological design should be a starting point for every intervention. Good knowledge of ecological effects at an early stage can improve a proposal and prevent damage.
We take a scientific approach across all levels, from individual species to the functioning ecosystem. Sound research and our decades of experience enable us to understand nature’s needs and our innovative vision guarantees you practical and beneficial solutions.
Socially important themes such as biodiversity, energy transition, wildlife-friendly design, climate adaptation and nature restoration play a major role in many of our projects. We provide independent and professional advice on these themes under the expert leadership of our ecologists, designers and landscape architects.
Waardenburg Ecology works worldwide in the fields of ecological monitoring and surveys, data management, and statistical and laboratory analyses. Our expertise spans the entire ecological spectrum, from freshwater and marine ecosystems to terrestrial ecology, hydrobiological research, aerial surveys, and legislation and regulations.
We believe in continually developing our skills and knowledge, and to achieve this we need access to the best equipment. Innovation is therefore of paramount importance to us! We have a modern DNA laboratory, and we ensure the space for creativity to develop new and more efficient sampling methods to ensure we remain leaders in our field.
