Feral animal and weed control assistance

News release
08 January 2015

Natural Resources Kangaroo Island’s Animal and Plant Control team is the first point of call if you have any queries or questions about feral animal or weed management. While the responsibility for the management of declared feral animal and weed species lies with the landholder, Natural Resources KI plays a role by coordinating management activities and runs island wide programs targeting specific species of weeds and pest animals, such as the deer and gorse eradication programs.

The APC Team has the advice and equipment to help you manage pest and weed problems on your land. Equipment available for loan includes: weed wipers and 12-volt sprayers in 200 and 400 litre sizes, and pig and cat cage traps. The team can provide you with advice about techniques for you to make the most of this loan equipment. They also have other information to help prevent pests and weeds having economic and environmental impacts on your property.

We are also very interested in feral animal and weed reports, particularly reports of unusual weeds or pests that may have only recently arrived on the island.

If you need assistance or have anything to report please contact us.
