Flora & Fauna Surveys


Flora and fauna surveys are a critical aspect of Environmental Impact Assessment. They are also used to gain an understanding of the values of an area to inform impact assessments and environmental plans. Surveys are also important to establish baselines and facilitate monitoring programs to assess the effectiveness of environmental programs.

All Western Australian assessments are designed to meet the legislative requirements of the Federal EPBC Act 1999 and the Western Australian EP Act 1986 and Wildlife Conservation Act 1950 [and the soon to be implemented Biodiversity Conservation Act ].
