Pest plants and animals
Pest animals and plants can pose significant threats to agriculture, the natural environment and public health and safety on the Eyre Peninsula (EP) region. Find out more about pest plants and pest animals in the region.
Natural Resources EP works closely with land managers to find ways of reducing the number of pests, help restore native biodiversity and reduce losses in the agricultural industry. We have implemented a pest management program to assist land managers identify and manage the pest plants and pest animals they may encounter on their properties. This program helps the community and industries to:
- prevent the establishment of identified high risk pests
- assess and prioritise existing pests
- raise awareness of priority pests, their identification and control
- access information and advice about pest control.
This project is supported by the Eyre Peninsula Natural Resources Management Board, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
