An Investigation of the Stygofauna Community in the Pilliga Area 2016-17.

An Investigation of the Stygofauna Community in the Pilliga Area 2016-17.
Executive Summary This report and field study was produced as a result of the comments in the Santos 2016 Environmental Impact Statement that “no stygofauna were collected during the sampling regime by Eco Logical” and therefore “there is an uncertainty regarding the presence of stygofauna at the project areas, especially Leewood”. The aim of this report is to provide certainty by demonstrating via a more extensive survey of bores across the Pilliga that stygofauna do indeed exist in the shallow aquifers of the Pilliga Forest, are at risk from the current and proposed future development of Coal Seam Gas production and therefore need to be considered and included in the environmental management program.
