Far North Queensland’s rich biodiversity continues to astonish us as we delve deeper into the heart of this stunning region. Over the past few months, our team of dedicated ecologists has been hard at work conducting various fauna surveys, unearthing some incredible finds, such as the iconic Koala, the elusive Storr’s monitor, and the captivating Northern masked owl.
But these surveys are not just about the thrill of discovery; they play a crucial role in land management, guiding decisions for landholders, developers, and mining companies. Understanding the local fauna is a prerequisite for any responsible land development project in Australia. These surveys provide vital insights into species composition, biodiversity, and the presence of protected or threatened species. Compliance with environmental laws and regulations is paramount, and fauna surveys help ensure that.
In the field, our team employs various methods, from direct animal observation to bioacoustic monitoring and trapping and release. Our goal is to gather as much data as possible to create a comprehensive picture of the area’s fauna, aiding in informed environmental management decisions. Our dedication is underpinned by a dual commitment – preserving the natural environment for the benefit of future generations and facilitating responsible and sustainable development practices.
