This project will base a team of volunteers recruited by the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation (FIDO) in Happy Valley to try to control the virulent invasion of Abrus prectorius (crabs eye). FIDO cleaned this area of this weed in December 2005 but with no follow up being carried out it urgently needs to be dealt with again and to be incorporated into future regular FIDO weeding programs.

The project aims to prevent weed infestation on Fraser Island by garden escapees found in residential areas on the island and carry out maintenance of the natural integrity of world heritage listed Fraser Island.
