Passionate about Conservation

We are passionate about biodiversity and working with communities towards their conservation goals.

The heart of Encounter Solutions’ system, the Celium Network, has already been deployed on islands, in forests, in the desert, around lakes and wetlands, in coastal areas, over steep topography, amongst stock on productive farmland and in urban areas. Each month Celium networks transmit thousands of messages for conservation programmes managed by private, non-profit, council and government organisations in New Zealand and Australia. These networks enable pest control teams to more efficiently and effectively manage the fight against invasive animal pests in their environments.
