[Extract] The Australian Centre for Tropical Freshwater Research (ACTFR) undertook surveys to assess the environmental values of the Palmer River to Townsville section of the proposed route for the Pandora gas pipeline. This includes a corridor extending ten kilometres on both sides of the proposed route. The proposed pipeline corridor from the Palmer River to Townsville almost entirely traverses a bioregion in North Queensland known as the Einasleigh Uplands, apart from the very southern section near Townsville (Brigalow Belt) and the northern section between the Mitchell and Palmer Rivers (Gulf Plains). The surveys were conducted by three teams, one for each of the following: 1) Vegetation Survey and Mapping 2) Aquatic Habitats and Fauna 3) Terrestrial Fauna Fieldwork for these surveys were undertaken in the last two weeks of September 1996 and the first week of October 1996. The vegetation and terrestrial fauna teams travelled together for 14 days. The aquatic team travelled separately for a total of 9 days. After the ground-based fieldwork was complete, the leader of each of the three teams participated in three days of helicopter surveys, traversing the pipeline route, including corridor, from the Palmer River to Townsville
