Habitat enhancement and creation is a critical component of impact management and conservation biology. These two things are intrinsically linked, and one of the main goals of the Biodiversity Conservation Act is to provide equivalence and improve, enhance and manage conservation lands to provide positive gains. Enhancement and creation for threatened species is one of the best ways to get positive gains. Our principal was involved in the design, implementation, construction, project management and supervision of this successful venture.

Skills employed included a high level of ecological and biological knowledge of the subject species, hydrology, chemistry and construction techniques.

This was undertaken in a very sensitive landscape during a period of high risk for the subject species. Project management, planning and 25 years’ experience restoring wetlands played a pivotal role in the success of this project.
