This pest management strategy identifies the key pest animal and plant species for reserve management in the Central Coast Hunter Region, the values they threaten and actions taken to minimise their impacts.
The document outlines recommended processes for pest management as:
- identifying key reserve assets and threats
- prioritising programs and actions for these assets
- consulting with key stakeholders and identify what actions can be reasonably undertaken using agency resources and in partnership with other government authorities, neighbouring landholders and community groups.
The strategy prioritises programs that aim to protect threatened species, neighbouring landholders and the public. Priority pest species in the region include wild dogs, foxes, bitou bush, lantana and asparagus weed.
