Our client is required by legislation to prepare an Airport Environment Strategy (AES). One purpose of the AES is to ensure that all operations are undertaken in accordance with the legislation and that a framework is established to assess compliance. Included in this process is an annual small mammal survey and quarterly frog monitoring. Ecosure’s ongoing task over the last ten years has been to monitor and report on significant species including the common planigale , wallum sedge frog and wallum froglet.
Ecosure have used a number of techniques to undertake these surveys including pit-fall traps and call-playback. In addition, the ecology team have monitored water quality to support their frog monitoring. The accurate and timely reports provided by Ecosure to the client have ensured their ongoing compliance and developed a lasting professional partnership that we expect to continue for many years to come.
