Ashley Shadbolt


Having graduated from Lincoln University with a BSc with First Class Honours Majoring in Conservation and Ecology – it’s no wonder Ashley has a deep interest in the regeneration of New Zealand’s native flora. In fact, Ashley’s university dissertation for his honour’s degree was on the reintroduction of native flora and fauna into an intensive agricultural setting.

Since graduating Ashley has gained invaluable practical experience as an environmental scientist for Solid Energy and Central Plains Water before becoming an operations manager for a significant and respected environmental solutions company and developing its South Island operations into multi-million dollar projects.

As our South Island regional manager, Ashley’s project management and ecological skills are welcomed by our clients – particularly around our substantial native planting projects for highways of national significance as well as Christchurch revitalisation projects.
