Submission to draft NSW Invasive Species Plan 2015-22 – Sep 2015

The Invasive Species Council endorses most of the objectives and actions outlined in the draft NSW Invasive Species Plan 2015-22, a comprehensive draft plan. The plan is mostly clear and succinct.

Missing elements: The plan lacks a few important elements – in particular (a) preventing new invasive species in a precautionary way by applying a permitted list approach, (b) comprehensive reporting on the status of invasive species and management and (c) identifying costs and new funding options for implementing the plan. Research should be given a higher priority given the current lack of effective methods for protecting biodiversity from many invasive species.
