Naturecall Environmental was engaged by MCJV Pty Ltd (a joint venture between McConnell Dowell and the Australian section of Consolidated Contracting Company (CCC)), to conduct fauna services during vegetation clearing for the QCLNG downstream pipeline.

Works for this project crossed a variety of habitats, including eucalypt forests, mangrove communities and intertidal zones.

This project saw the turning point for fauna management during trenching inspections, with the development and creation of tools specific to the task.
