Landholders have a responsibility to control declared pests on their land, but we know pests are difficult and expensive to control. We enable landholders to work together in a cooperative, coordinated approach. We provide access to ongoing matched Government funds, training, on-site expert assistance, as well, as free and subsidised equipment and materials.
WHY IT MATTERS
Declared pests can have devastating impacts on agriculture, the natural environment and human health and safety. Pests don't stop at fences or town boundaries. Success relies on well-timed cooperative controls over the whole landscape, not just farms. Everyone needs to be involved and everyone needs to be resourced and supported.
