Do you need consultancy about nature or ecology? You don’t know if there are any protected species to take into account? Maybe you need a quick scan, global research or detailed information before starting a project?  A survey? A practical advice about nature management (grazing, vegetation management, invasive species) or a management plan? Or do you need a review or second opinion on an existing ecological report?

My consultancy can offer it all. I will answer your questions about nature, law, protected species and more. Contact me now! You can find some of my reports under Projects (in Dutch).

About me

About Antje Ehrenburg
I am born and raised in Friesland (1962) in the north of The Netherlands, and I am living in Haarlem since 1988. I did an applied study in population biology (ecology) at the Agricultural University in Wageningen (1980-1988) with grades in vegetation ecology, soil science, environmental sciences and license to teach biology on the highest level (first grade). After my studies I have worked as an ecologist / researcher / advicer / text editor at ‘Gemeentewaterleidingen Amsterdam’, the drinking water company of the city of Amsterdam, now called Waternet (1988-2011). I did research in the dunes, adviced about nature management, guided volunteers in monitoring and did the editing of a newsletter about nature. The Amsterdam Watersupply Dunes were – and still are – my field of work. In 2011 I started my own consultancy in ecological research and monitoring. My academic background and years of experience formed me to the versatile ecologist I am now.

About me: I am practical, positive critical, enthousiastic, listening, directed to solutions, linking, targeted, and always keeping in mind: man, nature, proces and language.

How I judge nature? Nature is green, blue, red and yellow, just like my logo. Dry, wet, complex, resilient and never the same. Nature is also magnificent, intriging, rare, difficult or expensive. In any case less simple than it seems. Nature does not reveal it’s secrets all at once. Nature also has a lot of interfaces with legal frameworks and society. That’s why you should take nature into account. If you want, I can help you with it. Another possibility: just enjoying nature by going outside! For example: book a excursion or children’s party with Antje Ehrenburg! (English or Dutch spoken).

I am also editing the nature magazines ‘DUIN’, ‘Fitis’ and ‘Tussen Duin en Dijk’. In 2003 I started the Historical Society Amsterdam Watersupply Dunes. In my freetime I like to roam into the dunes or hike on long distance pathes. I am also working as tourleader for SNP Natuurreizen (walking holidays with groups) in Europe since many years. On LinkedIn you can read more about my activities.

Besides all this I love choral singing and organizing. If you like, you can ask me for organizing choir projects and tailor-made choir tours in The Netherlands and abroad. Take a look on

I am also mother of two sons (1994, 1998).
