The Australian white ibis (Threskiornis molucca) is one of three native species of ibis found in Australia and is protected under the Queensland Nature Conservation Act 1992 and New South Wales Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. Unnaturally large numbers of ibis are now found in many urban environments along the east coast of Australia, primarily because of easy access to abundant food sources such as some waste landfills and public feeding, which can result in public complaints, present an aviation safety hazard and impact negatively on biodiversity. There are also risks to public health and production animals.

Habitat assessments are a common survey method that the Ecology and Environmental Management team conduct when they visit project sites. The team looks for aspects of the environment that can either give clues that certain species could live in that specific area, or signs that confirm those species are residing there.
