Boco Rock Wind Farm Ecological Assessment
Wind Prospect CWP
Eco Logical Australia undertook an ecological assessment for a proposed wind farm at Boco Rock, in southern NSW.
The project included vegetation mapping; general and targeted flora and fauna survey; impact assessment; BioBanking assessments; client, landholder and agency negotiation; preparation of referral documentation under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act); and the identification and delivery of offsets and reporting.
The proposed wind farm site supports Natural Temperate Grassland and a number of threatened species. Detailed negotiations with government departments and reptile specialists were undertaken to establish a relocation strategy for the threatened reptiles present across the site and to achieve a net beneficial biodiversity outcome for the site.
