FloraFauna Consulting is an independent consultancy specialising in ecological and bushfire assessments for the planning, management and development sectors.  We are solution-focussed and are able to deliver sound scientifically-based information to assist in the decision-making process.
With a background in local government development control spanning twenty years and a further seven years specialising in bushfire risk assessment with the NSW Rural Fire Service Steve Britt; the Principal of FloraFauna Consulting has a thorough understanding of the planning and development process.    We are highly motivated and enthusiastic at FloraFauna Consulting but we also take a pragmatic approach aimed at achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients.  
FloraFauna Consulting employs best practice methodologies tailored to each project and the information needs of the client.  The consultancy is able to undertake ecological and bushfire assessments concurrently so that when a project involves both ecological and bushfire considerations, conflict between the different issues can be minimised and clients can benefit from savings in both time and expense.
While being based on the mid-north coast of NSW, FloraFauna Consulting can deliver expert ecological and bushfire assessment services throughout the State.
