Fauna Habitat Management

A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species of animal, plant, or other type of organism.  It is the natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds a species population.  A habitat is made up of physical factors such as soil, moisture, range of temperature, and availability of light as well as biotic factors such as the availability of food and the presence of predators.

Habitat destruction is the process in which natural habitat is rendered functionally unable to support the species present. In this process, the organisms that previously used the site are displaced or destroyed, reducing biodiversity.Habitat destruction by human activity is mainly for the purpose of harvesting natural resources for industry production and urbanization. Clearing habitats for agriculture is the principal cause of habitat destruction. Other important causes of habitat destruction include mining, logging, trawling and urban sprawl. Habitat destruction is currently ranked as the primary cause of species extinction worldwide.It is a process of natural environmental change that may be caused by habitat fragmentation, geological processes, climate change or by human activities such as the introduction of invasive species, ecosystem nutrient depletion, and other human activities.

Our company is a leader in Australia for the manufacturing and design of various fauna crossings, where environmental furniture needs to be designed in accordance with the fauna and flora of a particular area.   Different types of fauna crossings have been adapted to meet the needs of the environment including:

Rope Bridge Crossing;          Culvert Crossings;          Resting Poles      and    Nest Boxes
Boxed Rope Fauna Crossing     DP Log fauna culvertResting PolesNest Box in tree

 

 

 

At Fauna Crossings, we are committed to ensuring ‘best practice’ in researching and testing different solutions to wildlife crossing infrastructure.  Our goal is to tailor each type of crossing to the specific species in various landscape contexts. We also take into consideration, new solutions to the construction and material of these structures, based on changing wildlife movement patterns due to changes in habitats, climate or other factors.

What we have come to realise is that it is not whether to grow our communities and economies, but how and where we should grow them. These decisions will not only affect quality of life in our neighborhoods and communities. They will also determine whether the wildlife and landscapes that so characterize Australia will persist in the future.
