ESTUARY GUIDE BOOK
Services Areas: Photographic Resources, Science Communication, Original Artwork

Charged with sourcing images for the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai Trusts ‘Exploring an Estuary’ field guide, the EOS team took to their cameras in an effort to gain relevant imagery post the Christchurch earthquakes. With the Estuary and its surrounds being so severly affected by the Christchurch earthquakes (which happened while the guide was being written) it was imperative that we provided photos that were accurate at time of publication.

Working in some extreme circumstances we are very proud of the results.

PUBLIC PERCEPTIONS OF NEW ZEALAND’S ENVIRONMENT
Services Areas: Photographic Resources, Science Communication

Following completion of their biennial public perceptions surveys, Lincoln University has been commissioning EOS Ecology to design and produce compelling documents of the results since 2004.

With a target audience of managers and government department heads with little time to spare, the team at EOS worked on creating an intelligent and attractive design with a strong use of imagery. Using our own photographic resources, the design team at EOS employ photographs and concise captions to summarise the key findings and significant points within each chapter. Design of the survey booklets and posters summarising results are also key components of the project. Watch out for the latest survey book due out in 2011.

HEAVY METALS IN FISH AND SHELLFISH 2012 SURVEY REPORT
Services Areas: Photographic Resources, Science Communication

Engaged by Environment Canterbury to monitor the heavy metal toxicity in fish and shellfish of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai on a biennial basis, EOS Ecology then produces a report on the study for the general public.

As the animals studied in this programme were not all easily recognised, the EOS team used a specialist photography setup to take photographs of live specimens in natural settings. With a focus on keeping the text simple yet scientifically accurate, our designers used photographs alongside maps, symbols and graphs to illustrate key results from the study.

SITES OF HIGH ECOLOGICAL VALUE WITHIN THE MALVERN AND ELLESMERE WATER RACE SCHEMES REPORT
Services Areas: Photographic Resources, Science Communication

Selwyn District Council engaged EOS Ecology to assess the ecological values thay lay withing the Malvern and Ellesmere water race schemes. The resulting information was transferred into EOS’s report format.

This publicly available report maximises the use of site and taxanomic photography to help clarify the content for non-scientific readers—and show them some of the fauna they may otherwise never see.

This content has also been used to good effect in powerpoint presentations to interested audiences.
