Abzeco have a current DSE research permit for conducting flora and fauna surveys. Our staff are qualified zoologists, botanists and ecologists with experience undertaking surveys using a range of different methods including:
Abzeco staff have been observing, trapping and identifying native animals for many years while our botanical expertise allows us to identify the likely presence of rare and threatened flora, and to located and monitor these species in the field. A natural affinity for native flora and fauna combined with astute observation skills has resulted in a great depth and breadth of knowledge of habitats and behaviours. This knowledge is applied to each new survey and habitat assessment which makes it possible to predict the likelihood of species occurrence.
