Scoping Surveys

These scoping surveys (evaluations) generally feature a walkover inspection and a brief focus report. They can be expected to establish the obvious presence of protected species, priority species or species of conservation interest. Also, the report will include a broad description and appraisal of habitat conditions.

If there are protected species, priority species or species of conservation, we will inform you in the Scoping Survey report and will provide recommended courses of action so all your legal obligations can be fulfilled. These actions will not only be necessary, but can be carried out by Wild Ideas and our associates.

If you want to instruct us to undertake a successful Scoping Survey, we require the following:

  • Location and site plan with at least a broad development project outline, and other reasons why a survey is needed
  • Indication of the project timeline – bear in mind some types of surveys have seasonal constraints
  • Level of reporting needs. This can vary from a phone call or email to a paper report or presentation in person in front of you and stakeholders / business colleagues
