A Growing Queensland Ecology Team

Umwelt has had a busy 2019 with sustained growth of our ecology service offering in Queensland. Our Queensland team is led by Senior Ecologist David Gatfield who is supported by the recent addition of Ecologist Peter Splatt.

David joined Umwelt in 2018, and has professional experience delivering high quality ecology programs across Qld and the NT. He has strong approvals and ecological monitoring experience across the renewables, resource, infrastructure and Defence sectors. David also has significant knowledge in the identification and application of biodiversity offsets, particularly in Qld. David is heading up Umwelt’s ecology services in Qld and provides a strong connection to Umwelt’s national Ecology & Biodiversity services offering that is delivered through our various offices and regional staff.

Peter has experience conducting terrestrial ecology assessments across a range of markets throughout Qld. He has supported the successful delivery of environmental approvals including EIS, major EA amendments and EPBC referrals. As well has having a genuine passion and enthusiasm for the environment, Peter is particularly passionate about applying innovative solutions to projects, such as the application of UAVs to ecological surveys. This passion has led Peter to obtain his commercial UAV pilot licence as well as develop strong spatial analysis skills.
