IMG_3481Apunga Ecological Management (AEM) currently has a team of highly qualified employees with comprehensive ecological management skills and extensive experience in most vegetation communities present in Sydney.
The experience of our personnel qualify us for a broad range of bush regeneration and restoration works, landscaping, natural drainage construction, major revegetation and seed collection. We are also able to offer vegetation mapping, Bushland Management Plan formulation, flora/fauna surveys and environmental education activities.

AEM has developed and enforced comprehensive WH&S and Quality Management Systems tailored to the size of our operation. There is comprehensive safe work methods statements in place for all actives and the managing director has received certificate IV training in WH&S practices.

AEM benefits from a small team of employees that are passionate about theBarrenjoey environment and the improvement of vegetation health, whilst also having experience working with a wide spectrum of vegetation types.  AEM operates above and beyond the expectations of NAR providers and delivers consistent high quality field work.  An advantage of using a small company such as AEM is either the owner/operator or head supervisor, and quite often both, will lead the team in the field creating solid results and ensuring consistency.  It is also noted that the AEM internal pay structure for staff is well above the award rate, which compliments the already focused work efforts. Management and our staff appreciate an ongoing fluid relationship with our contract managers.
