Biotropica Spotter Catcher service

When undertaking vegetation clearing for your project, it is often a requirement on your clearing or development permit to have a ‘spotter catcher’ at site both pre-clearance and during clearance. This is because clearing native vegetation risks displacing native fauna. A spotter catcher is able to help you to minimise the risks that occur to these species and to keep your employees safe. Our spotter catchers have many years of experience in handling and rehabilitating wildlife and are certified snake handlers. They have senior first aid certificates and the necessary immunisations. Our staff are able to use a methodology that preserves wildlife whilst minimising interruption to machinery operators. Biotropica is authorised to undertake spotter catcher services under a rehabilitation permit approved by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and has the necessary insurance cover to undertake this work.
