Priority invasive animals

Learn more about the region's invasive animals identified as priorities in our biosecurity plan.

Through our biosecurity planning process, we assessed all of the invasive animals known to occur in our region. This helped to identify the species that should be prioritised through our invasive animal management. A number of factors were considered such as the potential impacts of each species, and its likelihood of further spread if left unmanaged. By identifying priority species, we are able to maximise the effectiveness of invasive animal control activities.

Find out more about the priority species for our local government area on the pages below.
