New Chair of EIANZ Ecology Special Interest Section

Dave Fleming (Principal Ecologist), at Ecology and Heritage Partners (Brisbane office) has been appointed Chair of the Ecology Special Interest Section (SIS) of the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ).

The EIANZ Ecology SIS was established in 2009 with the aim of bringing together members of the Institute who share a passion of ecology, and to provide a focus on the ecology profession, drawing on the existing strengths of Institute and the Certified Environmental Practitioner program.

The primary objectives of the EIANZ Ecology SIS are to:

  • To be compatible with other existing groups and to become complimentary with their needs;

  • To network other groups using the Institute's infrastructure to help them develop joint forums;

  • To communicate regional outcomes to professional ecologists throughout Australia and New Zealand, and,

  • To help develop and / or raise awareness of appropriate standards for ecological practice.


Dave Fleming, Principal Ecologist, Chair EIANZ Ecology SIS

Dave says ‘he's delighted to have the opportunity to reinvigorate the Ecology SIS and is looking forward to reconnecting with members of the Institute previously involved with the SIS, and new members with an interest in ecology and keen to be involved'.

I am particularly passionate about engaging with the members to encourage active dialogue and participation in robust discussions around current and emerging trends, issues and challenges in the Ecology space. As the Chair of the Ecology SIS it is important for me to promote best practice and high ethical standards in ecological assessment, research and management, and to encourage relevant members to gain certification as an Ecology specialist in the Certified Environmental Practitioner (CEnvP) scheme’.

Further information relating to key discussion points and ways you can actively contribute to the Ecology SIS will be provided in future news alerts and the Certified Environmental Practitioner newsletter.

Any members in a position to actively participate in the Ecology SIS and support the continuation of this important role within the Institute are encouraged to contact Dave Fleming at or phone 0407 512 176.
