Ecological Site Inspection Prior to Works

Part A: Review Works Plan

  • Location of Works (name reserve & describe section of reserve being worked in)
  • Ecological Restoration Techniques (what work is being done, include weeds being treated)

  • Desired Outcome of Works (what is the goal or outcome desired by works being conducted)

  • Stakeholders: Who are the stakeholders of the site? How does the site manager consult or communicate with them?

  • Process for consultation (how are stakeholders engaged)

  • Based on works being conducted what permits are required?

Part B: Assess Impact on Ecological Values

  • What plant communities are on site & where are they located (provide map)

  • EVC Name & Number on site

  • Map of EVCs (Use Naturekit screenshot)

  • What protected species are on site? Provide information source

  • Protected Species (EPBC or FFG act listed)

  • undefined

  • Flora Species of Significance - Are there species of significance on site? What are they? Species of significance are species that are not listed in State or Federal Acts as Rare or Threatened but may be of significance to land manager due to be locally or regionally significant or for some other reason

  • What species & why

  • Fauna Species of Significance

  • What fauna or signs of fauna can be observed on site?

  • What are the threats to these biotic elements?

  • Abiotic Element

Abiotic Elements

  • What threats to soil are present?

  • Based on this assessment of biotic and abiotic elements and the threats to them what recommendations would you make regarding the planned works?


Part C: Assess Impact on Cultural & Heritage Values

  • What known cultural and heritage considerations are on site?

  • What potential cultural and heritage values could be on site?

  • What is the process if you discover some?

  • What potential threats from works conducted could impact cultural and heritage values?

Part D: Determine Biosecurity Implication

  • What are the biosecurity (weeds, pests & diseases) hazards and threats identified for the site in works plans?

  • What other biosecurity hazards and threats can you identify on site?

  • Are any of these subject to legislative requirements (are there legal required actions)?

  • What actions are required to mitigate (control) biosecurity risks of these hazards?

Part E Summary of threats and risks identified from proposed works

  • Threats & Risks Identified from proposed works

  • Proposed Actions Required
