Victoria’s Invasive Plants and Animals Policy Framework, consultation draft – Sep 2009

Resources |

We advocate a ‘permittled list’ approach to weeds, which permits the introduction of non-indigenous plants only after a risk assessment finds they are low risk. The framework is too narrow in its focus on ‘high-risk’ species and ‘high-value’ conservation areas. Climate change needs to be a recognised important context for reform. There needs to be recognition that native species are also invasive.
