Shelley McMurtrie


Position: Principal Aquatic Ecology Scientist
Qualification: MSc (hons) Zoology

Urban stream ecology
Aquatic invertebrate ecology
Stream restoration

With a first class honours MSc and 12 years industry experience, Shelley has spent time working for NIWA and the Christchurch City Council before establishing her own research consultancy with partner Erron. Recognising the valuable role high-end research should play in the management of our natural systems, Shelley is driven to enhance our freshwater and estuary ecosystems for the benefit of our communities.

Having navigated the challenges of growing EOS Ecology from a start-up business to a respected research consultancy, Shelley is enjoying being in a job where her research work has an applied outcome. “I get to work on projects where there is a ‘feel good’ vibe with a great outcome for both the community and ecology of the environment.”

When not in the big outdoors, Shelley can be found relaxing with more artistic pursuits such as taking photographs, sewing up an outfit, or bone carving.
