Zane Penny

Junior Consultant (BSc)
027 239 5992

Zane grew up in a mixture between his family home in the Ruapehu region and Papakura. The exposure to the outdoors and rural setting in the Ruapehu region is what ignited his passion for the environment and the outdoors, leading him to pursue a career in environmental science. Zane is now working for All Clear, performing fieldwork within Auckland and the surrounding areas, training to be an environmental consultant.

Zane graduated from the University of Auckland mid-2020, with a BSc majoring in Environmental science and biotechnology. It was through this progression at University, that Zane really began to develop a key interest in solving complex environmental issues using the ‘scientific method’. In particular, Zane is interested in water, soil and microbiological contaminants and is always keen to find and develop new methods to reduce these contaminants within New Zealand’s environment.

When Zane is not working, you will find him the great New Zealand outdoors. He is a very keen motocross rider, alpine skier and climber, and mountain biker, who is aiming to compete in the NZ national enduro mountain bike series. Zane’s many scars and bruises is a testament to his heavy involvement in these extreme sports.

You will also find Zane playing guitar at his local church, in which he is heavily involved with and has made many lasting and impactful relationships that have affected him both in his working and personal life.
