Flora and Fauna Studies

The Flora and Fauna Studies provide a comprehensive assessment of the current flora and fauna of each reserve. Systematic surveys are undertaken in bushland reserves to produce the studies. The Studies provide recommendations that may assist the Council in the conservation and management of these reserves. They also contribute to a database list of species and the mapping of vegetation communities.
