Invasive plants and animals

Invasive plants and animals pose a significant threat 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 coordinated effort between community and industry to manage invasive species in our region.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
