EnviroKey also has extensive experience in Community Biodiversity Surveys. These surveys are an important, and fun way of engaging local communities and community groups in biodiversity, as well as learning about the biodiversity of your local area. Recently, the EnviroKey team completed a Community Biodiversity Survey at Panboola, near Pambula on the NSW South Coast. Panboola comprises a series of diverse estuarine and freshwater wetlands on a river floodplain, and the objective of this study was to fill existing knowledge gaps. Until this study, little was known of the with regard to reptiles, mammals and microchiropteran bats that occur at Panboola. Our study identified nine mammal species, six reptile species and 12 bat species. Five fauna species listed as threatened under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 or the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 were also recorded.
