Environmental Solutions has extensive experience in developing successful management programs for pest animals and plants. These pests can pose significant threats to environmental integrity and undermine industry potential, but early detection and effective management can minimise these impacts.
We are the key service providers to the Natural Resources Management (NRM) Boards, government agencies, industry associations and other stakeholders. We have developed regional pest plans and use risk assessment models to identify those pest species that pose the greatest risk to the regions. On ground activities include pest management planning, survey and control, monitoring and evaluation.
Rural Solutions SA has Australia's leading feral camel management team, providing innovative solutions for feral camel management in Australia through:
The current estimated 1-1.2 million feral camels in Central Australia are causing unacceptable damage to environmental and cultural assets.
During times of drought, feral camels impact significantly on refuge water points, threatening the survival of native fauna and flora that rely on and regenerate from these refuge sites.
Rural Solutions SA aspires to zero feral camels on the landscape, and advocate strategic and cost effective management to achieve positive environmental, economic and social outcomes.
