Invasive plants and animals (commonly called weeds and pests), pose serious threats to our natural areas and native animals, agriculture and production, human health and our way of life.

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 co-ordinated effort between community and industry to manage invasive species in our region.
