fauna management

Did you know that Black Cockatoos mate for life !
I would like to think that we could be their mates for life too !

our first step is ensuring the care and well-being of any fauna present

Some of our WA species of fauna are listed as THREATENED or ENDANGERED, and some even on the verge of extinction.

Clearing of native vegetation in the Swan Coastal Plains, our Banksia woodlands and wheatbelt areas where foraging and/or breeding naturally occurs, is a major threat.

Increasing development, mining, agriculture, climate change and fire are also key factors, in the decrease of available nesting hollows, roosting and foraging sites.

We are very mindful and respect our fortunate position to work within the environment. Carrying out a fauna inspection of every tree and shrub we are faced with, prior to any work being undertaken, is our first step to ensuring the care and well-being of any fauna present. Typically, if any fauna does exist which are mostly birds in Springtime, we will put the job on hold until the chicks fledge for example.

Wayne is also a certified Wildlife rehabilitator with WAWRC (Western Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Council Inc.) and can assist with fauna relocation from trees, to approved wildlife carers.

Fauna Management

A proactive approach in assisting endangered fauna breeding and improving habitat, is to install nesting and roosting hollows.

These come in many shapes and sizes, to suit the species you wish to target and of course which is native to your specific area. Artificial nest boxes have become very popular due to their success as well there longevity once installed.

Some of the threatened fauna species that we can help supply and install artificial nestbox/ tubes for are;

  • Red-tailed Black Cockatoo
  • Baudin’s
  • Carnaby’s
  • Western Ring and Brush Tailed Possum’s
  • Microbats
  • Pardalote’s

Some things you can do to help ?

  • Protect and plant suitable tree and shrub species on your property
  • Keep your cat inside at night and control domestic and feral animals in bushland areas
  • Provide a water source in summer months
  • Install a suitable artificial nest box/ tube, in trees within your area
  • Manage any fire on your property to not destroy valuable habitat
  • Engage with the broader community to assist in the protection, management and to help raise awareness of the needs of our native fauna
  • Report any sick or injured wildlife to the Wildcare Helpline WA (08) 9474 9055
