Nest Box Design & Installation
At Australian Fauna Management we design and build nest boxes to replace the loss of hollows and breeding habitat for fauna from land clearing projects.
Using 20mm ply and a tree friendly mounting system, we construct specially designed boxes to suit particular targeted species as well as using salvaged hollows to reinstate after clearing.
Our nest box entrances, sizes, shapes and designs are specially constructed to suit a range of targeted species of birds and aboreal marsupials including:
Phascogale, northern quoll
Ringtail & Brushtail Possums
Sugar Glider, Feathertail Glider, Greater Glider and Yellow Bellied Glider
Parrots, including Lorikeets, Rosellas, Galahs and Cockatoos
Owls, Kestrels, Falcons
Loss of habitat is one of the largest pressures threatening the survival of much of our native fauna. Eucalypts, for example, may not significantly form hollows until they reach over 100 years of age and these hollows form essential nesting sites for many native birds, bats and mammals.
The on site data Australian Fauna Management collect on a project is integrated into a custom mapping system where we can easily access data on the number, characteristics and dimensions of hollows removed in an area and the species inhabiting them, to determine potential occupants and where we need to replace lost nesting sites with artificial nest boxes
