As part of the Land Alive program, funded by the New South Wales (NSW) State Government, a full Biobanking Agreement was conducted on Tricketts Arch, in Jaunter, NSW. Kleinfelder was engaged to undertake detailed flora and fauna surveys in accordance with the Biobanking Methodology which includes writing a Biobanking Assessment Report and Management Plans to support the Biobanking Agreement application.
Through this project, the client was able to generate significant ecosystem and species credits for sale. This project established Kleinfelder as one of the first consultants in NSW to undertake a biobanking assessment. Through the continued refinement of the biobanking methodologies used in this project, Kleinfelder has been able to support many other clients with similar biobanking assessment projects.
