Bioassessments provide and integrate biodiversity and water analyses as an indicator for river and terrestrial ecology health, anthropogenic related impacts and consequences to the socio-economic environment.

Through their passion and specialist skill set, the Digby Wells Environmental Aquatic and Wetlands Team truly Make A Difference though their continued conservation efforts of the global Freshwater Ecosystems, for both our clients and the surrounding communities alike.
