Flora and Vegetation Surveys

Native vegetation in Western Australia is protected under the State Environmental Protection Act 1986 which requires individuals and/or companies to gain approval from the Environmental Protection Authority prior to clearing or removal of native vegetation.  This vegetation can also provide habitat for fauna and an understanding of the species present is generally required to inform impact assessments and facilitate approvals to develop or clear land.
