Section 5A Assessments
7 part tests of significance – fauna and flora surveys to sample species, especially threatened species, are carried out on sites planned for various types of developments such as housing subdivisions, road widening and quarry operations.
A seven part test is carried out for threatened species detected or expected to occur on the site.
Threatened Species Survey and Banding
Banding and flagging of Beach Stone-curlews, Australian Pied Oystercatchers and other threatened species for government and non-government organisations.
Young shorebirds are caught and banded before they can fly. The results of these surveys are being used to manage and protect these threatened species.
Flora and Fauna Lists
Flora and fauna lists can be produced for property owners who have a desire to know what species occur on their land. This can assist them in the management of their properties in an ecologically sustainable way.
Surveys and lists can be tailored to suit people’s individual budgets.
