Dragonfly Environmental are one of Sydney’s leading providers of bush regeneration services, working for Councils, developers, golf courses and government bodies from Avalon to Campbelltown and beyond. We work in a wide diversity of environments ranging from saltmarsh, sand dunes and freshwater wetlands to ridgetops and the Cumberland Plain, many of which form part of endangered or critically endangered ecological communities.
The majority of Dragonfly’s bush regeneration team members have 5-10 years experience in the industry and substantial local knowledge of the areas they work. We also take on keen trainees to ensure that the industry has a strong future.
