OWAD Environment is a specialist consultancy providing tailored services in ecology and soil & groundwater contamination.
OWAD Environment is owned and operated by Olivia Woosnam and Alex Dudkowski. With a combined experience of over 20 years' professional experience, we have completed numerous consultancies for projects of all sizes across sectors and industries.
Among other services, we conduct Koala surveys using 'Taz' our professional Koala detection dog trained by conservation dog expert Steve Austin. As of 2016, Taz also detects Quoll scats (Spotted-tail, Northern and Eastern Quoll).
We are based in South East Queensland and have capacity to work across Australia.
Both Alex and Olivia are Certified Environmental Practitioners* from the Environmental Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ), which ensures the highest standards of ethics, quality and professionalism. We are currently the only CEnvP accredited professionals conducting surveys with a conservation dog.
Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your project needs.
* For any type of environmental related service in Australia & New Zealand, it is highly desirable to engage CEnvP accredited professionals. Visit the CEnvP Directory for the list of accredited professionals in Australia and & New Zealand.
