Summary

This project seeks to control and monitor invasive weeds and pests (such as dogs, pigs, foxes and cats) in the Mungallala Central Collaborative Area Management Cluster area.

Benefits

The project will:
  • reduce the presence and spread of weed species.

By reducing weeds across a large area, the project will also assist in:
  • building the presence and resilience of native grass species
  • improving ground cover
  • reducing water turbidity and silt deposition
  • reducing the pressure of pests
  • reducing grazing pressure, which will limit the predation of native fauna and the degradation of riparian areas.
