EnviroDNA is proud to be the first dedicated provider of environmental DNA (eDNA) services in Australia for wildlife detection, biodiversity mapping and monitoring. Our eDNA wildlife detection services present an exciting opportunity for innovation. Using eDNA, we have designed testing methods that are highly accurate, efficient and cost-effective in comparison with traditional surveying techniques. We aim to bridge the gap between research and industry application, and foster community engagement through citizen science.
The key stages of an eDNA wildlife survey
STEP ONE: Select your species of interest and eDNA test approach (target species or biodiversity assessment)
STEP TWO: Order sampling kits
STEP THREE: Field Sampling – EnviroDNA or you!
STEP FOUR: Lab processing
STEP FIVE: Results & reporting (presence/absence)
Targeted Species Test
Targeting one species of interest
Valuable for low abundance and elusive species or
broad scale species detection
Targeting all species within a taxonomic group
Ideal for capturing biodiversity baseline data and monitoring
You can let us know your project needs and our team will help you find the best eDNA approach.
Why choose eDNA? The advantages and opportunities for wildlife detection and monitoring:
Detect species earlier to allow for more effective and efficient management outcomes
Increase sensitivity of monitoring by detecting species that are low in abundance
Detect species in areas where there may be logistical limitations for traditional methods
Increase ability to detect species that are difficult to by nature detect e.g., shy or cryptic species
Apply broad scale surveying, as well as gathering extraordinary levels of biodiversity data
Reduce costs of detection and monitoring (e.g., no special permits or highly trained people are required for eDNA sampling)
eDNA sampling for species can be conducted in rain, hail or shine!
Foster community engagement through citizen science projects
