Retaining Australia and New Zealand’s biodiversity is crucial for maintaining a resilient, stable and healthy ecosystem but, unfortunately, human activities and the introduction of exotic species has led to substantial declines across many environments.

How can EnviroDNA help?
By providing eDNA Species Detection services EnviroDNA works closely with environmental and conservation managers to increase their ability to measure, monitor and manage Australia’s biodiversity. We help our clients assess biodiversity from an environmental sample (e.g. water or soil) providing unprecedented levels of accuracy, sensitivity, cost-effectiveness and real-time precision. By taking a multispecies detection approach, a biodiversity assessment detects all species present within particular groups. Groups that we can determine species composition are:
