Gympie Regional Council

Biodiverse Environmental undertook fauna spotter catcher works for Gympie Regional Council in early 2022 during the bridge upgrade at Glastonbury Creek Road, Glastonbury.

Pre works surveys and during the works a fauna inspection was carried out following the legislative requirement under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. The purpose of the pre-clearance fauna survey was to locate fauna, their breeding places, habitats, and to relocate any fauna that might be impacted by works. The Fauna Spotter Catcher was present for infrastructure decommissioning and inspected habitat features before and as clearing was occurring to identify any fauna present.  Fauna found were captured and relocated to suitable habitat out of the clearing limits.

Six fauna species were identified during the clearing and were captured and relocated to a suitable habitat nearby outside of the clearing limits. Over 21 habitat features were found.
