About Us

Welcome to Pendoley Environmental

Pendoley Environmental was established in 1997 by Dr Kellie Pendoley. From humble beginnings we’ve grown into a leading marine conservation biology and artificial light assessment consultancy, with specialists operating out of our Perth office working on coastal and offshore projects across Australia and beyond.

Drawing on 30 years of extensive experience in delivering high-quality and respected services to industry, government and the academic community, our team of dedicated specialists can support you in meeting compliance obligations, enabling the demonstration of your environmental commitment and eco credibility to regulators and stakeholders.

Over the years, we’ve formed an invaluable collaborative network with local, national and international specialists at the forefront of global marine biology conservation. Together with our accomplished team of marine scientists, marine turtle and seabird biologists, remote aviation specialists and artificial light technical specialists, we’re now providing multi-national resource companies with the most up-to-date environmental solutions.

Every solution we innovate is tailored to your needs, ensuring we address your environmental impact with minimal impact to you. With over 90 satisfied clients (and growing), we’ve proven we’re in it for the long haul. We look forward to partnering with you as your environmental consultancy of choice.
