About Me

Amélie Augé, PhD

Amélie is a spatial ecologist with extensive expertise and experience in how spatial ecology and data can improve coastal and marine conservation and management. Applied science and how it can be translated in management and policy has always been a key part of all her projects. Therefore, stakeholder engagement and public education always have a place in her projects. She thrives on those challenging complex projects where strategies and innovation are required. Grounded in reality, her outputs are designed to be understood by, and appealing to, those who need them to make recommendations, comments or decisions. Amélie has a PhD in Zoology and an MSC in Surveying/Marine Science from the University of Otago. She most recently worked or completed projects for the New Zealand Department of Conservation, the Northland Regional Council, the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (Falklands Islands) and James Cook University's Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (Australia). Amélie has developed a local and international professional network in the domains of spatial ecology, GIS, coastal management, marine protected areas, marine mammals and seabirds.
