The survey targeted species and communities listed under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (TSC Act) and the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act); in particular the spottedtailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus), greater glider (Petauroides volans), large forest owls (powerful, masked and sooty owls), long-nosed potoroo (Potorus tridactylus), large-footed myotis (Myotis macropus) and golden-tipped bat (Kerivoula papuensis).

The fauna surveys resulted in the detection of 24 (five exotic) species of mammal, 56 species of bird, 10 species of reptile, eight species of frog and three species of fish. Two of those species, the large-footed myotis and the eastern bent-wing bat are listed under the TSC Act, while the greater glider is listed under the EPBC Act. Flora surveys identified six plant community types, with 135 component plant species. No threatened plants were found.
