Ecological Consulting

Birds Bush and Beyond takes on a range of projects with an emphasis on the conservation of woodland birds and their habitats, focussing on:

 

  • design and implementation of ecological monitoring projects and field surveys, especially around threatened species and communities,

 

  • development of landscape and species conservation management plans,

 

  • assessment of woodland ecosystems to provide strategic information on their management,

 

  • working with community groups, such as Conservation Management Networks and Landcare Networks, to establish and then carry-out bird and habitat monitoring programs,

 

  • providing specialist ecological advice to land managers

 

 

Example projects:

  • Practical Parrot Action Project – supporting the recovery of the threatened Turquoise Parrot (consulting for the Goulburn Broken CMA in north-east Victoria);

 

  • Monitoring woodland birds at a landscape-scale as part of the Australian Government-funded “Enriching biodiversity in the NSW Riverina Bioregion by managing the Travelling Stock Reserves network for nature conservation” project;

 

  • Conducting surveys of woodland birds to indicate habitat condition and change in the Barmah-Millewa forest - an icon site of The Living Murray Program; and surveying bush birds at ecological thinning sites as part of a large-scale NSW government research project.
