Offsets & Monitoring

The Eco Solutions & Management team has assisted a number of projects to meet offset commitments by conducting detailed habitat assessment and preparing offset management plans for approval by regulators. We have also designed and implemented numerous monitoring programs that were a requirement of approval conditions. We have a strong emphasis on designing monitoring programs that are appropriate and fit for purpose. This has included the design of a drone-based monitoring program to detect changes in the health of riparian groundwater dependent ecosystems. We are currently exploring the used of environmental DNA techniques to monitor the continued presence of populations of threatened species to provide a more efficient and effective monitoring tool.
