Threatened Flora Translocation & Rehabilitation Management Plans

Where significant populations of threatened flora species occur the removal of reproductive material (seeds or cuttings), or the entire plant may be moved and re-established to suitable habitat outside the disturbance area as part of a detailed management plan. This can be critical when progressing the development process. For some instances where disturbance is temporary, the rehabilitation of threatened species habitat can also be undertaken. The team at 4 Elements are skilled in the assessment of threatened flora populations and associated mitigative measures.

We provide this service to companies in the private sector that are looking to meet their environmental approval conditions.

Why Choose 4 Elements Consulting?

We have a proven record of translocating difficult plant species within the wet tropics. This includes dryland species into thinly soiled rock out crop communities. This includes the translocation and re-establishment of EPBC Vulnerable Plectranthus amoenus, Homoranthus porteri and Grevillea glossadenia. All of which were not previously attempted prior to commencement and the results are considered to be cutting edge works.

Cycad and grass tree relocations are also undertaken as regularly required as part of landscape management plans for residential developments.

Within our own nursery facility we propagate numerous rare and difficult to grow species. These include the EPBC critically endangered Purple-flowering Wattle (Acacia purpureopetala), Prostanthera clotteniana and the EPBC Endangered Melaleuca uxorum. These are currently being grown on for reintroduction to suitable habitat providing important work in the understanding of these plants’ cultivation in addition to bolstering population numbers of species which are critically low in numbers.

Under one roof, our teams’ diverse botanical experience can deliver outcomes for translocation and rehabilitation management plans from project design phase and permitting through to project completion including post monitoring.
