Natura Pacific provides comprehensive fauna spotter catcher services, priding ourselves on always ensuring the best possible outcome for fauna affected by vegetation clearing while also considering the clients requirements and constraints.
Queensland legislation generally requires an EHP certified fauna spotter to inspect a site prior to vegetation removal and to be present during clearing to attend to any wildlife that may be impacted.
Natura’s fauna spotters are highly qualified, have an extensive understanding of wildlife ecology and work under a state government issued fauna spotter rehabilitation permit. Our team are extremely experienced and are trained in the identification, handling and care of all native species, including venomous snakes. Some of our fauna spotters are also qualified and registered wildlife carers.
We aim to always build effective working relationships with machine operators and site personnel and consider the positive interaction with operators one of the most important factors of the job. Having a good relationship enables us to work safely and efficiently around heavy machinery as part of the clearing team.
During pre-clearing surveys our fauna spotters are highly experienced in identifying habitat features and predicting animal occurrence across site. These surveys allow us to actively manage clearing activities to ensure works are conducted in a streamlined manner and in accordance with the needs of the wildlife species on each site.
Natura also provide wildlife nest box installation and monitoring services in order to help mitigate the loss of hollow-bearing trees. These services are available to all our clients and additionally form part of a community engagement program conducted in partnership with Borallan Correctional Centre, where the prisoners learn carpentry skills through constructing nest boxes according to our specifications. Our team are highly experienced in nestbox installation and employ their understanding of the ecological requirements of species at each site when selecting and installing nest boxes.
