Biodiversity assessments

environmental services

Nature Conservation Margaret River Region has an environmental services arm aimed at giving landholders another tool to help protect nature and biodiversity on their property. 

Assessing flora and fauna on your property

We employ a Biodiversity Officer who can carry out biodiversity assessments on a fee-for-service basis on private property. That’s a response to the many landholders who want help with understanding their biodiversity values and how best to support the environment on their property. 

Biodiversity assessments to help plan at your place

Biodiversity officers specialise in biodiversity assessments and revegetation and weed management plans. A biodiversity assessment looks atvegetation and waterway condition, habitat values, connectivity to other areas of remnant vegetation, and what current and future threats exist, such as invasive weeds or feral animals. It includes a plan for how the landholder can successfully protect the biodiversity that remains or rebuild what’s been lost.

Biodiversity in our region is facing many threats, but an assessment is the first step to understanding and then giving nature a helping hand at your place. It also benchmarks the current condition of a property to help landholders monitor the impact of their actions over time. Assessments are a valuable tool for vineyards, larger rural properties and even smaller rural residential properties.

Our experienced team has carried out biodiversity and Land for Wildlife assessments for clients including Voyager Estate, Howard Park Wines, the South West Catchments Council and private landowners.

“Nature Conservation informed us that the largest contributors to biodiversity decline are habitat loss and fragmentation. This has seen many fauna species become rare and restricted in range. The biodiversity officer surveyed our remnant bushland and identified areas to prioritise and improve to promote connectivity through the property. The main channel of the Wilyabrup Brook and its tributary were identified as especially vital for providing a wildlife corridor for species like the Western Ringtail possum and so this is where our work began.”
