Invasive plants and animals
Brisbane enjoys many beautiful natural areas with abundant wildlife and biodiversity. Unfortunately, some species have been introduced into the natural environment where they compete for resources and adversely affect our native flora and fauna; these species are called invasive (or pest) plants and animals.
Council is committed to managing invasive plants and animals to ensure the long-term protection of our natural environment and biodiversity.
