Zoetica's Philosophy

Zoetica is a unique entity that acts to connect you to experts and to connect experts to one another. Zoetica was founded by Dr. Bears, a wildlife biologist, EIA specialist, and systems thinker. Dr. Bears established Zoetica based on a heartfelt desire to provide superior environmental consulting services done by experts in their fields, and to provide all services through a pragmatic, interdisciplinary lens. We believe that the problems facing our environment should be thoroughly understood in order to provide effective solutions. However, human tendencies towards territoriality and myopia in consulting, scientific research, and business often get in the way of this goal. Dr. Bears works to break down artificial barriers between complimentary scientific disciplines, sectors, and businesses, and uses the foremost experts in academic, consulting, public, not-for profit, Aboriginal, and private sectors, across many disciplines, to get the most reliable answers and novel solutions for evaluating and addressing environmental issues. 

What is 'Zoetica'?

Zoetica is a cross between a co-op, a company, an NPO, and a University. It wants to revolutionize how consulting is done. We have hand selected senior level scientists that stand out from consulting firms, universities, think tanks, and other entities, which are managed by the ZoeticaNet management system and online portal. We work to provide you with the best people, and a management system and leadership team that works. As a participating scientist, we provide you with internal networks, and unique opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and work on interesting projects and questions. By connecting leaders at the forefront of their respective disciplines, Zoetica aims to provide the highest quality consulting, done right the first time. A portion of all profits generated by Zoetica funnel into the Zoetica Grants (Found on the Grants Page of this website), for which Zoetica Partners can apply to help fund their pet solutions-oriented research projects.  

What is 'ZoeticaNet'?

ZoeticaNet is a new online system that allows you to ask questions to our senior level experts for a reasonable price, and with no fixed contract. ZoeticaNet also links partners internally through the back end of this web site, via a web chatting service and time, budget, and team management system. Use ZoeticaNet as you need to get: quick advice on a project or issue, a second opinion from a leading scientist, general precedent information from a lawyer, or to check on issues currently being experienced by clients using Zoetica Environment Research Services as their primary consulting service (a service for full-time clients of Zoetica).  


Zoetica wants to work with seasoned clients who already know these three secrets of project development: 

  • Using experts is expensive, but using amateurs ends up far more expensive;

  • Shortcuts usually take more time in the end;

  • A job poorly started requires more time to finish.
