Pest plants and animals

Pest animals and plants pose significant threats to the natural environment and public safety in the Alinytjara Wilurara (AW) region. The AW Landscape team works closely with communities to find ways of reducing the impact of pest species in order to improve land condition and public safety.
In South Australia there are a number of weeds that are declared plants SA because they pose risks to primary industries, the environment and/or public safety. The list of declared plants is currently under review.
