Managing invasive animals on your property

Invasive animals have significant economic, environmental and social impacts. An Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre report found that the direct impact from invasive animals in Australia is more than $740 million a year.

Landholders, including the state government, are responsible for controlling invasive animals on their lands. Under Queensland legislation, pest control notices can be issued.
