A pest is any animal or plant that has an adverse economic, environmental or social impact on a particular place.
Pest plants and animals degrade our natural resources, damage precious vegetation, compromise biodiversity and interfere with human health and recreation.
Fraser Coast Regional Council is updating their Biosecurity Plan to align with the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy. The Fraser Coast Region Biosecurity Plan 2018-2022 covers the entire local government area including all land and water (but excluding marine) resources.
It provides a framework to facilitate the coordinated management of invasive plants and animals in the Fraser Coast region identified in the Biosecurity Act (2014) as well as other invasive species identified as having significant local impacts.
The Draft Biosecurity Plan 2018-2022 will be formally launched for Public Consultation on 19 December 2018 for a 6-week public consultation period before the final draft is submitted to Council for adoption in early March.
