Description

Mapping the Future is a five-year (2018-22) program funded by the Northern Territory Government to undertake water, land, soil and biodiversity assessments in areas with high development potential. The goal of these studies is to support sustainable development of natural resources and to de-risk investment. Flora surveys were undertaken between July 2018 and March 2019 to locate threatened plants, update species habitat models, and to refine mapping of sensitive and significant vegetation communities. Fauna surveys targeting threatened mammals, owls and frogs were undertaken between June 2018 and February 2019. Fauna surveys recorded 88 native species, five of which are threatened.
