Ricky Vowles BApplSC

Ecological Restoration Specialist

Ricky is one of the founding staff members of Clean Streams Consultants. After studying Landscape management followed by a decade within practical ecological restoration, Ricky saw the need for a consultancy that delivered an environmental solution from the ground up. Working with our director he put together the Clean Streams team that would deliver environmental reports and plans that a practitioner could accurately deliver. 

He brings with him a wealth of botanical knowledge and practical restoration methodology. With regards to forest restoration, he has worked on Rangitoto, Tutukaka and the Hunua Ranges helping restore and maintain our native forest. In the last few years, he has been responsible for the creation of 50 wetlands within the Auckland region. He is very enthusiastic and passionate and this shows when discovering pristine historic forest. Ricky is also a member of EIANZ and NZES.
