Ipswich City Council
Ipswich Local Government Area, SEQ.
2020

We were recently awarded a contract to examine the status of threatened Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby (BTRW) populations in parts of the Ipswich LGA. Our work will involve a review of historical BTRW records to examine possible changes in the two key range parameters Extent of Occurrence and Area of Occupancy, working with Council officers to develop a field-based monitoring protocol, implementing a trial monitoring program and designing a BTRW database.

Ipswich Local Government Area, SEQ.
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 a 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.

World Wide Fund for Nature
Eastern Australia
2020

Funded by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (Australia), we have recently completed an assessment of the impact on koalas of the 2019 / 20 fire season. We are able to do this because earlier project work provided us with a large array of contemporaneous (i.e. current koala generation) pre-fire survey data.

Ballina Shire Council
Ballina LGA
2017

In 2012, the NSW Minister for Planning & Infrastructure initiated a review of the application of Environmental Zones (E Zones) and overlays in Local Environmental Plans on the Far North Coast of NSW. Amongst the implications arising from this review was the deferral of proposed land use zonings in some areas.

Various locations in eastern Australia

We have recently completed several local and landscape-scale, connectivity studies intended to better understand and predict the movement needs of koalas across fragmented landscapes.

Various

We often work with other consultancy companies and/or organisations to assist them with the undertaking of various projects. Current collaborations include:

- working collaboratively with ARCADIS and Transport NSW to understand and mitigate potential impacts on koalas arising from construction of a proposed highway interchange and stormwater drainage channel located near Six-mile Creek Road in the Port Stephens LGA.
