Chloe joined Morphum Environmental in August 2019 in the Science team. Chloe holds a BSc in Environmental Science from AUT, specialising in Freshwater Ecology. She also holds a PGDip in Environmental Science (Distinction) and is now partway through her Masters degree in Science (Environmental) at Auckland University. Chloe is passionate about biodiversity conservation, and is studying the use of biodiversity offsets for stream loss in New Zealand. Her research is cross-disciplinary and involves a return to the restoration ecology foundations of offsetting by assessment of restored stream offset success in Auckland and Wellington, combined with an assessment of the regulatory drivers behind offset establishment and stream loss.
Chloe has a background in local government and private consultancy work, having worked as an Environmental Specialist at RIMU (Auckland Council) and as a laboratory technician respectively. She is also a volunteer researcher for Project Blue New Zealand, a youth run organisation which advocates for ocean conservation via work with companies to reduce reliance on supply chain plastic. Chloe views collaboration and innovation as key to successful, sustainable environmental projects.
Out of the office, Chloe is usually caught surfing at Muriwai, exploring our regional parks, or attempting to master mountain biking. She is very passionate about living sustainably and sharing her love of the environment with others.
