Dr Fleur Maseyk | PRACTICE LEADER - CONSERVATION SCIENCE
Over the last 20 years Fleur has worked for central and local government, for a private ecological consultancy, an international conservation NGO, and as a postdoctoral research fellow. This has given her a broad-ranging experience in conservation and natural resource management across theoretical, strategic, and policy levels, and first-hand experience in the realities of its implementation. Fleur relies on robust evidence to inform decision-making and links science, policy, and on-the-ground actions to solve crunchy problems.
Fleur brings with her a tireless enthusiasm for rowdy debates on society, politics and place, and a primary school certificate for dramatic ability.
With The Catalyst Group from the beginning, Fleur took things trans-Tasman when she received an ARC Australian Postgraduate Award and a Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions Top-Up Scholarship in 2012 to complete her PhD at the University of Queensland. Fleur’s research focused on applying ecosystem services thinking to conservation and natural resource management decision-making. Now based in Wellington, Fleur continues to blend both research and client-based projects.
fleur’s areas of expertise include:
Natural capital and ecosystem service approaches to natural resource management
Biodiversity offsetting theory, policy, and implementation
Land management practices and farm planning to integrate biodiversity into production landscapes
Biodiversity policy development
Provision of technical expert evidence
