Ferals in Focus - Glen Innes

04th Sep 2018

$8,410

Pest animals have been identified as a major issue for landholders across the Northern Tablelands region and as a threat to numerous threatened species and ecological communities. Pests such as rabbits, feral pigs, foxes and wild dogs all have significant impacts on both the natural environment and agricultural production.

There are numerous environmental assets across the Northern Tablelands, including the World Heritage listed Washpool and Gibraltar Range National Parks, Torrington State Recreation area, Bolivia Nature Reserve and many others. These assets along with a number of endangered ecological communities and numerous vulnerable and endangered species (see attached EPBC list) are significantly affected by pest animals.

This project will deliver a Pest Animal Forum bringing together land managers, both public and private land, technical experts and pest animal control practitioners from across northern NSW to share information, experience, techniques and new technologies.
