NatureMetrics is an innovative science-based company with a proven track record in providing high quality commercial scale environmental DNA services around the globe. We make biodiversity measurable and support infrastructure clients to transition to nature positive economies by providing the data that drives sustainability and good decisions for business and nature.
All animals leave traces of DNA in the environment, for example from skin and faeces. By simply sending water and soil samples to NatureMetrics, these traces of DNA can be translated into lists of species present in the area. Sampling kits are easy to use even for local staff or schoolchildren. Our laboratories process thousands of samples for hundreds of clients, identifying anything from bacteria to blue whales. This data can feed into metrics and targets across the project lifecycle from baselining of development sites to risk management and planning, net gain, nature positive targets and engaging stakeholders.
Our DNA-based services are faster and cheaper than conventional assessments and we deliver the biodiversity data needed to accompany your Environmental Permit or Planning Application. We can help you to meet your regulatory requirements, but also to go beyond compliance to better manage your risks and meet your organisation's biodiversity ambitions.
