Fauna spotting and relocation

Fauna spotting and relocation

You can protect biodiversity when you know what species are present at a site and exactly where these are located.

Our qualified and experienced fauna spotters work with resources and construction companies to help minimise impacts on biodiversity. 

By finding and relocating native wildlife during land clearing and infrastructure installation activities, they play a vital role in protecting species and ensuring you meet your regulatory requirements.
