Did you know: Invertebrates make up between 95 and 97 percent of all animal species on Earth. They are the planet's biggest source of biodiversity and can be found on every level of the food chain.

Phoenix is the industry leader in targeted terrestrial invertebrate surveys, including short-range endemic (SRE) assessments. This claim is backed by unmatched field experience in Western Australia, taxonomic expertise that is unparalleled in the private sector and stringent reporting standards based on scientific publication principles.

Our highly experienced team is led by Dr Volker Framenau, one of Australia's leading arachnologists and an internationally respected invertebrate expert with superior research and field experience. 

By completing almost all invertebrate identifications in-house, Phoenix maintains control over project timelines and data by avoiding the time-consuming involvement of external experts. Being at the forefront of scientific research also means our studies are respected and well-received by regulatory bodies. 

Our clients reap the benefits through timely project advancement, cost savings and enhanced environmental outcomes.
