Invasive animals

Learn about our region’s invasive animals, council’s programs and how you can protect your place.

A number of animal species have been introduced to Australia since European settlement. Some were deliberately released, whilst others escaped captivity. Either way, a number of these species established wild populations and quickly spread out of control.

We use the word ‘invasive’ to describe these animals as they are able to spread quickly and are difficult to stop.

Learn more about the invasive animals that are found in our region on the pages below.
