With a long standing reputation for providing high quality, timely deliverables we are well placed with a strong team to help make your project an environmental success.


BOOBOOK has been in business since the year 2000, with a passionate team who have over 60 years combined ecology experience.  Our work contributes significantly to the expansion of scientific understanding and good environmental decision making.


Flora and fauna surveys, rare and threatened species searches, ecological impact assessments and fauna spotting catching are some of the specialised services we provide.


As trusted native flora and fauna experts we are known for our reliable and accurate information, strong work ethic and quality reporting.


Since our inception we have continually worked with major coal seam gas, mining and construction companies.  Besides our quality on-ground work and reporting we have also been the company of choice for technical advice to take part in meetings with federal government permitting officials.


We work with the agricultural industry, government sector and natural resource management groups on a range of projects from roadside vegetation assessments, biodiversity surveys, property mapping, threatened fauna, protected plant and weed surveys.


Easily accessible, we are located at Roma Queensland, within a one hour flight from Brisbane, the gateway to the rest of Australia and beyond.


Our specialised personnel are skilled and experienced in all aspects of ecology especially species identification, vegetation assessments, trapping and handling of native wildlife, reporting/mapping and planning.


We have ecological experience throughout Australia, an in-depth knowledge of the Brigalow Belt region and Surat / Bowen Basins along with an impeccable safety record.
