A bit about us......

We are a small consultancy team with specialist skills in landscape-scale koala conservation biology, threatened flora and fauna survey design, implementation and data analyses, conservation planning and spatial modelling. We have been in business for more than 20 years and service an extensive client list from amongst the private sector, NGOs, Local, State and Federal Government agencies. Rather than growth and expansion, we operate a sustainable business model maintained by a tight group of highly skilled and motivated individuals.

Current projects

2020

We have been contracted by Ipswich City Council to undertake an assessment of habitat use by koalas across Council's Parks and Reserves, including the Mount Grandchester, Flinders - Goolman and  White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estates. The project involves are review of historical koala records to examine changes in koala distribution over time, as well as the application of SAT-based methodologies to quantify aspects of koala occupancy and metapopulation configuration in key areas.

Biodiversity Assessment Method (BAM)

The Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and associated Biodiversity Offset Scheme (BOS) establishes Biodiversity Stewardship Agreements (BSA) which are in-perpetuity agreements entered into by landholders to secure biodiversity offset sites. Biodiversity Stewardship Agreements are used by landholders wishing to generate and potentially sell biodiversity credits.
