Pest animals and invasive species
Brisbane enjoys many beautiful natural areas with abundant wildlife. Unfortunately many species have been introduced into the natural environment and these pest species compete for food and shelter and prey on native animals. The effective management of these pest animal species is therefore essential to ensure the long-term survival of the native species that still remain amongst us.
Brisbane City Council is committed to addressing pest animal management to ensure the protection of native species and their habitats.
Exotic species are introduced to both land and water environments where they threaten native plants and animals.
