Fauna Spotter Catcher and Pre-clearing Services
Fauna pre-clearing survey and spotter catcher (ecologist monitoring) services may be required as conditions of development consent, particularly where vegetation clearing may impact native animals & sensitive habitats.
Arbor Ecological provide spotter catcher services and pre-clearing survey services directly prior to vegetation removal. Pre-clearing surveys take into account previous flora and fauna assessments, threatened species and fauna habitats that may be present, and signs of fauna use of a site.
Care is taken to inspect hollow-bearing trees, ground litter, rock outcrops and other fauna habitats to detect cryptic and other species.
