Succession Ecology has been formed by Glenn Christie and Briony Horner. With over 50 years combined experience in the environment industry we have built a multi-faceted environmental consulting business. We are passionate about using natural processes to create, restore, build and manage ecosystems.
Our pathways to this end-point are from two very different directions. Glenn, the practitioner, through a passion for seed collection and broadacre revegetation techniques and Briony, the ecologist, through research into animal and plant interactions and species resource use.
Succession Ecology can take your project from beginning to end with project design and management, addressing legislative requirements and compliance, site assessments and approvals, to site remediation, recovery and monitoring.
