On Company's onshore blocks in Bago and Sagaing Regions, there are a number of species which are regarded as endangered. The flora & fauna consultant must be able to identify these species correctly before and during seismic operations so that we won't harm these species, won't cut the endangered vegetation when clearing access for seismic lines or when building access roads.
The flora & fauna advisor should be present on site during seismic acquisition to ensure the identification of these species. No additional environmental consultants will be present on site to take care of the identification.
The PHE F&F Advisor will be working independently on field.
F&F Advisor shall be able to implement the Biodiversity Action plan together with the company's team. Should also be capable of reporting environmental parameters and conditions that must be included in monitoring reports as required by MONREC.
