Flora and fauna management plans and fauna species management programs

Conditions of approval generally require that impacts on flora and fauna species and their habitats are minimised. To achieve this, specific mitigation and management measures must be implemented during the construction and operational phases of infrastructure projects, often as a component of the Environmental Management Plan (EMP). BAAM understands that these measures, which can vary widely between transport, energy, water and port infrastructure projects, must be achievable to be effective.Working closely with our clients, BAAM develops flora and fauna management plans for significant species and important habitats as well as weed management plans and pest animal management plans.Fauna Species Management Programs are required to manage impacts on animal breeding places in Queensland as defined under the Nature Conservation Act 1992. While the Queensland government provides a generic program for species that are listed as least concern, project-specific Species Management Programs are required for managing impacts on breeding places of threatened, near threatened, special least concern and colonially breeding species. It is vital to have sufficient knowledge of the ecology of the subject species and the nature of the proposed actions to be able to develop a program that is both achievable on the ground and appropriately manages the species concerned.BAAM has experience in successfully preparing and implementing flora and fauna management plans and Fauna Species Management Programs.
