Unlike many other feral animal and pest control companies, Terrestrial Ecosystems takes a scientific approach to its work and is focussed on the humane and ethical management of fauna. Terrestrial Ecosystems uses technology to minimise staff time required to undertake monitoring programs and has a variety of traps at our disposal. In fact, many other WA environmental firms hire traps and equipment from us, as they do not have sufficient or appropriate traps of their own.
Terrestrial Ecosystems’ initial move into vertebrate pest management and control was stimulated by the need to use the available science in vertebrate feral and pest animal control. Both Partners in Terrestrial Ecosystems have a PhD in a relevant area, regularly publish in the scientific literature, particularly in the area of fauna surveys and trapping procedures and regularly present at appropriate conferences.
Terrestrial Ecosystems can provide advice in the preparation of feral and pest animals management, including signage, stakeholder communications and control and where feasible eradication of the species.
