We share the government’s commitment to building a brighter future for tomorrow.

We are proud of our long-lasting relationships with both state and local governments, who recognise our expertise and engage us as partners to deliver projects which identify, explain and protect the ecological features and biodiversity of the region.

Boobook Ecological Consulting has contributed to a broad range of state government projects such as biodiversity appraisals and protected plant surveys, bird surveys and BioCondition assessments.

Our team is also frequently contacted to help with fauna spotting and catching.
