About Us

Kerr & Associates will tackle problems and challenges around the management of the coastal and marine-freshwater environment. We have a special interest in advancing marine conservation in New Zealand and the Pacific region. We are happy to have a discussion with you about ideas, projects and needs.

A short list of work we are keen to discuss to discuss with you is:

Marine survey and monitoring, marine habitat mapping, marine protected area planning, traditional management, environmental campaigns, communication and media development, environmental education, community engagement (working with Iwi, working with the NGO and not for profit sectors, working with the government), project management, ecological assessment and planning.

We are a team of professionals with a passion for environmental work and in particular marine and freshwater systems. Our collective skill base is a wide range of disciplines. We feel this is our strength. We bring together science, education, media and communication skills, project management and specialist participatory and community engagement process capabilities. Everyone on our team has a significant professional background of achievement. In our various professional careers, we have developed new ideas, new approaches and solutions to challenges we have been involved in. Now, we are bringing this collective experience together in order to do more.

Our team is multi-disciplinary by design. In a process as complicated as marine protected area planning, a team approach is fundamental. If we can't put a top team together to tackle your work, we will bring in expertise from our wide network of professionals contacts.  We will offer a state of the art, solution-based collaborative approach to the challenges we face.

Projects we have been involved in our marine protected area planning, habitat mapping, protected area design & modelling, GIS analysis, marine monitoring, photography above and below the water, communications and media campaigns, project management, iwi traditional management support, ecological assessment, and development of stakeholder participatory processes.
