Most of Queensland’s invasive plants and animals were introduced to Australia from other countries and have now spread out of control. Some native species can also become invasive when they move into areas outside of their normal range.
Controlling invasive species is challenging and requires a combined effort from all stakeholders. Council is leading a coordinated effort between community and industry to manage invasive species in our region.
