Creation Care is staffed with qualified and trained teams and has a large pool of efficient and modern equipment suitable for large-scale weed control, revegetation and native vegetation management. We have up to date spatial recording systems and the latest ArcGIS software for all our work. We comply with SafeWork SA and the WH&S Act requirements, and have systems in place to ensure the safety and welfare of staff, clients and the environment.

Creation Care started working with dung beetles in 2002.  We have assisted with the establishment of new dung beetle species in Southern Australia; we have specialised in research on mass-rearing of dung beetles; and developed new methods for establishing dung beetles on farms.
