The Northern Rivers has the second largest number of invasive animal issues in Australia (Northern River CMA 2008) and the critical role the community has to play in managing invasive animals is now well recognised.
In recognition of this, Tweed Shire Councils vertebrate pest management program:
  • undertakes management of declared pests and other ecologically significant invasive species on Council managed land
  • provides training and, where possible, tools for participating landholders to implement control measures on their property
  • coordinates on-ground, cross tenure, control works at strategic sites

The species included below are some of the invasive species threatening our local ecosystems:
