Highly aggressive yellow crazy ants are listed as one of the top 100 worst invasive species in the world, and sadly, have made it into northern Australia through our ports. Capable of forming super colonies, they threaten our Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and carry huge social, environmental and financial impacts.
That’s why we’ve joined Townsville City Council in the battle against yellow crazy ants in Queensland’s far north.
Our community coordinator, Bev Job, is working with the council to help local communities eradicate yellow crazy ants, which have been present in Nome, just south of Townsville, since 2008.
If you live in the area and would like to get involved, we’re always looking for more volunteers to work on this incredibly important protect. Just sign-up below!
