Current Projects

 

BMS have worked throughout Australia and overseas, covering a wide range of biodiversity projects.

 

BMS have conducted fauna surveys and impact assessments for a variety of projects including mines, residential subdivisions, pipelines, roads, bridges, airports, golf courses, kangaroo control, water management, dams and tourism developments.

 

The projects listed below are just some of the current projects that BMS are working on. Check out our Facebook page to see our most recent discoveries.

Research Projects

 

BMS have conducted bird surveys relating to a DPI grazing exclusion experiment in the rangelands of western NSW.  Previously we were involved with a research project on Greater Bilby responses to predators for an ongoing project at UNSW. Other projects include radio tracking microbats that were removed from hollows in trees cleared for a development.  The aim was to look at relocation and survival.

Biodiversity Offset Assessments

 

BMS have investigated parcels of land proposed for Biodiversity Offsets for a mineral sands mine near Pooncarie. Investigations involved targeting BOS Credit and Threatened Species, and associated habitats.

Impact Assessments

 

BMS have conducted broad surveys for threatened species for mine modifications near Pooncarie and Orange. Investigations involved targeting BOS Credit Species and associated habitat, and assessing the scale and impact of the loss.

We have also been working on impact assessment of cave-roosting bat species on Wilpinjong and Ulan Coal Mine leases. This involves cliffline mapping, roost inspection and population assessments for Large-eared Pied Bat and Large Bent-winged Bat.

 
Local Jobs

 

BMS have prepared both BDARs and fauna flora reports in order to satisfy Lithgow, Baturst and Blue Mountains Council requirements for residential development applications.

 

We also provided fauna input into the review of environmental factors for RMS works on Jenolan Caves Road and Bells Line of Road, and conducted a biodiversity assessment for road drainage upgrades in Parkes Shire Council.

This work is on top of our ongoing fauna monitoring work on Newnes Plateau for Centennial Coal.
