The Kāhu Environmental story.
Since 2007 we’ve evolved from one planner in his garage to a diverse team of 15 resource management planners, kaupapa taiao experts, and ecologists. In 2021 we changed our name from Perception Planning to Kāhu Environmental. It evokes the vision and fine skills that we are known for, and neatly describes who we’ve become.
- The kāhu/harrier hawk is a bird with amazing eyesight (which reflects our Perception Planning origins)
- A kāhu hovers above the earth and takes in a landscape view, and can hone in on fine detail
- The kāhu is at home in native forests, pasture, and forestry, successfully straddling Pākehā and Māori worlds. Much of the work we do operates in both spheres.
