Natural Area can undertake field work throughout Western Australia including remote and mining locations. We have an inventory of field equipment and resources for data collection and some field analysis. We specialise in flora, vegetation and fauna surveys but can undertake various other types of environmental surveys that may be required as part of the EIA process.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in WA is primarily regulated under the Environmental Protection Act 1986
by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). The process is rigorous but can be complex and difficult to navigate. Natural Area can assist in determining if a proposal needs to be referred to the EPA and then how the proposal should be managed pending the EPA’s assessment of the proposal. This includes preparing documentation to regulation standards and undertaking the correct field work in order to collect appropriate data.
The level of reporting will vary depending on the EPA’s assessment of the proposal. Natural Area can assist with preparing initial reports and on-going reports including the collection of appropriate data at the determined intervals.
