Proudly Serving Vancouver Island & BC Since 2011
Registered Professional Biologists & Biological Technicians
Building Relationships One Project at a Time
Aquaparian’s senior biologists have over 25 years of experience in providing a wide range of environmental services for the public and private sectors. We have worked all over Vancouver Island and across British Columbia providing terrestrial, freshwater and marine environment services.
We are a passionate company that understands the development industry, regulatory requirements and design options. We can provide input at the project’s concept stage to streamline approvals, which saves time and money. Our expertise lies in our understanding and experience in planning and developing complex development projects in environmentally sensitive environments.
Land development requires a balance between the needs of the project and, often, multiple layers of government regulatory requirements.
Working in or near freshwater resources requires careful environmental assessment and monitoring, and a knowledge of the government approval processes.
From project design to construction, Aquaparian provides a full range of environmental services for projects in the marine environment.
We have extensive experience in writing Environmental Protection Plans and Management Plans to avoid or mitigate environmental damage during construction.
