Reduce down time when wildlife is encountered on your worksite

Fauna Spotter Catchers mitigate the impacts that development has on native fauna.  A Fauna spotter’s work typically involves the identification, capture and translocation of wildlife that may be directly impacted by any proposed development works.

It is a requirement under state regulation and usually a condition of environmental approval that fauna spotter catchers be present when vegetation clearing is undertaken at a project site.

Our fauna spotter catcher capabilities include:

  • Pre-clearance Surveys
  • Aquatic & Terrestrial Services

Where do we offer these services?

4 Elements Consulting is based in far North Queensland and as a result, our company focuses strongly on areas within the Wet-tropics and Cape York Peninsula. We are, however, experienced in the capture of wildlife across all of the state and can provide these services wherever it is required.

The Process

Prior to any vegetation clearing, an ecologist with relevant experience will attend the site on interest and conduct a pre-clearance assessment. This is done to identify and mark any areas of potential wildlife habitat, such as roosts, burrows, tree hollows and nests.  On the day of proposed land clearing works, the fauna spotter will work closely with on ground construction who are involved in the land clearing by observing and monitoring all areas of vegetation being cleared and prevent impacts to fauna within these areas.
