Again, although Planeto Azul cannot afford to be picky, we are anyway,
working only on projects that help protect and restore natural systems.
There’s no need to waste anyone’s time by contacting us
about work that doesn’t do this.
See recent projects (link) for examples of the expertise at Planeto Azul Hydrology
All rates for Planeto Azul Hydrology are sliding scale, with the bottom
of the sliding scale at about 40-50% below market rates for comparable
services and expertise. The rate generally increases with increasing
complexity, but generally decreases with increasing importance to
ecosystem protection and restoration. Ability-to-pay is sometimes
factored into Planeto Azul’s rates. Reasonably incurred expenses
are at cost, as are subcontract services. Humor is usually free.
Note: Planeto Azul occasionally considers reduced rate work on
some conservation issues for groups with a very limited ability to
pay..the only way to find out is to ask.
Contact us to discuss specific needs and potential rates and budget.
