Bracken Ridge State High School is located within a rich and diverse wildlife corridor and as part of the construction of the New Learning Centre and carpark upgrade, flora and fauna conservation is important to the school community due to the removal of some trees in the area.
Alder Constructions invited staff and students to be a part of the installation of new Hollow Log Homes habitat boxes. The group were briefed by members of the Wildlife and Fauna team on the project and watched as the boxes were installed in various mature trees throughout the school grounds. These boxes will house a number of flora and fauna, such as small gliders, brush-tailed possums and parrots.
The wildlife and fauna team shared the importance of protecting the various species on site, and the students then watched as six boxes of varying sizes were installed throughout the trees by the crew.
Our team worked collaboratively with Arborists and Fauna Spotters during the early tree removal works to ensure flora and fauna were protected and relocated safely where required. We aim to minimise our construction footprint as much as possible to conserve these natural habitats.
