Managing invasive animals

Find out what council is doing to protect against invasive animals and how you can protect your place.

Controlling invasive animals is complex. They are typically highly mobile and adaptable. They often have few natural predators or fatal diseases. Many invasive animals have high reproductive rates, meaning they can multiply quickly.

Effective, long-term control of invasive animals is best achieved by combining several species-specific control methods.

The effective management of  invasive animals requires commitment and action from all stakeholders. Council is leading a collaborative and integrated approach in protecting our region from invasive species.
