Weed Control Program

The presence of foreign weeds is slowly destroying South East Queensland’s (SEQ) precious ecosystems. Invasive weeds continue to thrive in our environment due to the inexistence of natural predators and similarities between Australia’s climate and the species’ country of origin. Infestations of foreign weed species along riverbanks and in rainforests have devastating effects on SEQ […]

Vegetation has been cleared for […]

Feral Pest Management on Minjerribah

Since European settlement, invasive animal and plant species have wrought a terrible toll on the Australian environment. Rabbits, toads, camels, goats, brumbies and pigs are some of the feral species that damage the landscape, kill native species and breed uncontrollably. The problem is extensive even in high-value conservation areas like North Stradbroke Island in South […]

Land for Wildlife

Since 1998, the South East Queensland Land for Wildlife program has supported and empowered private landholders to improve the health of their properties and provide a natural habitat for wildlife.
