Natural resource management groups


Natural resource management groups

We are firmly grounded in our region but carry a vision that far extends its boundaries.

Together with natural resource management groups, we leverage community commitment to protect the future of our natural resources for our neighbours of tomorrow, building resilience and capacity at a local level.

We collaborate with natural resource management groups working in catchments and land care regionally, and partner with other ecological consultancies who share our vision and values.

Regional natural resource groups

  • Identifying flora, fauna and regional ecosystem types/vegetation communities
  • Documenting wetlands and springs
  • Reporting on and mapping findings to assist with property management and project funding
  • Developing management recommendations

Contributed to educational field days, by:

  • Giving presentations relating to flora, fauna, vegetation communities and biodiversity management

Prepared threatened fauna/flora surveys, including:

  • Targeted surveys for threatened species
  • Habitat and likelihood of occurrence assessments

Created interpretative materials, including:

  • Text and photographs for interpretative signage
  • Booklets, posters and brochures

Prepared maps, such as:

  • Property maps showing roads, tracks, trails, fence lines, dams, bores, stock yards and other property infrastructure
