ABOUT US

Based in Blenheim, Wildlife Management International Limited (WMIL) is an ecological consultancy dedicated to research and conservation of nature. For over 30 years, our team has been working in monitoring, protecting, and managing natural ecosystems both in New Zealand and overseas. Our organised and motivated team is highly trained and can bring specialised skills to your project, no matter how big or small.

We have a strong ornithological back ground, with our team being some of the country’s leading birders. Ensuring that this is more than just a job, we have a real passion for nature, it’s conservation and research.

Clients include central and regional Government conservation and research agencies, non-government conservation organisations and private sector commercial businesses. Many projects involve working with local organisations in a partnership approach, which we see as critical to achieving long term conservation gains.

Here at WMIL we are committed to local action, that’s why a portion of every invoice is donated to New Zealand’s most isolated community conservation group, the Chatham Islands Taiko Trust, to support grass roots conservation.
