Why we need an Invasive Species Management Plan
Invasive plants and animals cost Queenslanders more than $600 million each year in losses to agricultural production alone. In Brisbane, invasive species:

  • are the number one threat to our biodiversity after land clearing
  • affect our nature-based recreation and tourist industry
  • can cause respiratory and skin irritations

Under the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002 local governments must prepare an invasive species management plan that is:

  • approved by the state government
  • compliant with the Act
  • reviewed every year

What the Invasive Species Management Plan does
The Invasive Species Management Plan helps to:

  • identify problems that affect successful invasive species management
  • develop a number of options to overcome those problems
  • decide which strategies are best suited to deal with the problems over the next four years
  • implement actions to combat the problems
  • review the actions to see if any changes are needed

Who the Invasive Species Management Plan affects
Anyone who owns land, including individuals, companies and governments, has a responsibility under this Plan to control the impact of pests on their land.

This means that whether you own a house with a garden in the inner city, outer suburban acreage or an industrial site, you are responsible for controlling invasive plants and animals on your land. Invasive Species Management Plan
