Remote feral pig trapping explored at Longreah Workshop
Along with the delivery of the first two trapping systems in the region, a one day demonstration workshop was held at the Longreach Pastoral College involving participants from several local governments from the region as well as landholders, college students and local departmental staff who were all eager to see first hand how the trapping system worked.
The two traps purchased by DCQ will be soon put into rotation as part of a landholder loan scheme in the region and we are looking forward to following their future trapping successes.

For subdivisions in bushfire prone areas, we can work with your Architect or designer to provide design advice and evaluate options for locating sites and roads/paths to minimise bushfire risk, provide appropriate access/egress, establish the BAL rating ranges for individual lots and address Council requirements.
For proposed dwellings in bushfire prone areas, we can carryout Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) assessments, a fundamental requirement for Building Approvals and regulatory compliance with the Building Code of Australia.
An assessment is required by the Building Certifier in order to obtain building approval and these are carried out accordance with Australian Standard AS 3959-2009 Construction of buildings in Bushfire Prone Areas. The BAL level determines the construction requirements for the dwelling.
