Conservation Services

We love the great outdoors and New Zealand’s unique and diverse ecology. Our conservation and biosecurity division provides specialist and trained workers devoted to conservation principles. New Zealand has a unique ecosystem that is carefully managed and monitored by the Department of Conservation (DOC) with support from specialists nationwide. Biosecurity is critical to our native species as it helps to prevent damage caused by unwanted organisms such as animal pests, weeds, didymo, and diseases like kauri dieback.

Abseil Access Ltd are registered with AsureQuality as part of the urgent response Nationwide biosecurity response team working closely with the Department of Conservation, City Councils, and the Army Training Group, providing services such as Rare Species Identification & Relocation and Weed Eradication.

Weed Eradication Bio Security

The native flora of New Zealand is unique as it evolved in isolation for millions of years, with 80% of our trees, ferns, and flowering plants only found in our country. With over 200 plant species now considered pests, our protected natural areas face ecological threats, and continued conservation efforts are critical to protecting our native flora.

Since 1995, Abseil Access has developed specialised access and control techniques for removing pest plant material from these places. Locations of weeds are recorded using photographs and GPS so control methods can then be implemented. On completion, clients receive a detailed report of the scope of work.
