Wildlife Corridor Engineering
Animals, birds, reptiles and amphibians all make trips for much the same reasons we do. Unfortunately for them, the modifications we make to the environment to improve our own mobility is leading to their increasing isolation, threatening their very survival.
As the built environment and the transport corridors connecting settlements continue to consume more and more of the landscape, the ability for wildlife (and over longer periods, vegetation) to move and spread becomes more and more constrained. In fact, very few terrestrial vertebrates would not encounter the need to cross a road in their lifetime, and wildlife in the more densely settled or cleared parts of the country would need to contend with roads and many other human induced challenges on an almost daily basis.
We bring together post-graduate qualifications in Environmental Management (specialising in remnant vegetation and wildlife corridors), and an in-depth understanding of road-user behaviour and the engineering of roadways.
In conjunction with ecological experts and specialist biologists, this equips Cambray Consulting to:
Develop plans and actions for the connection of remnant patches of vegetation;
Develop innovative approaches to assist in facilitating terrestrial, arboreal and aquatic wildlife movement;
Identify the need for and location of wildlife crossing treatments over or under transport corridors; and
Provide detailed advice regarding the engineering of wildlife corridors.
