This project focused on managing the spread of weeds and feral animals. On-ground works associated with pest control were undertaken in many areas. In relation to wetlands, gamba grass and sickelpod were targeted in the Coen River region. Feral pigs were targeted on the west coast to control predation on turtle nests. Bauhinia was targeted within the Jensen’s Crossing area and bellyache bush was controlled within the Palmer River region. Some spraying was undertaken from a helicopter.
