Matt Ward joined ACD Environmental in 2019 as a Graduate Ecologist. This is Matt’s first season as an ecologist in the UK but he has previous experience working as a restoration ecologist in New Zealand. Matt has also volunteered with various organisations assisting with field surveys, restoration of degraded habitats through replanting, reintroduction of species, removal of invasive plant species and tracking and trapping of invasive animal species.

Matt completed a research Masters degree in Ecology at the University of Otago, New Zealand. His research investigated the impacts of multiple stressors in freshwater systems, assessing the response of stream macroinvertebrate species to two key agricultural stressors: fine sediment of various grain sizes and reductions in flow velocity due to varying degrees of water abstraction. Matt is currently working towards his graduate CIEEM membership.
