Fighting plagues and predators: Australia’s path towards a pest and weed-free future

Feral Herald |

A report prepared by the CSIRO and Centre for Invasive Species Solutions (CISS) details how and why invasive species are the major threat to Australia’s threatened species — currently ahead of habitat destruction and climate change.

Plagues and pests are not a distant problem, they are here now. Learn more about this growing issue by accessing the full report by clicking here, or watching the video below.

As the report details, Australia is currently faced with two potential futures. One in which invasive species take over our landscape, or one in which we protect what is unique about our places. Luckily, there are still solutions to help prevent the impact of these alien invaders and work towards the latter.
