This document acknowledges that the region includes a diversity of landscapes that support a number of threatened animals, plants and communities, important cultural heritage, wilderness areas and Ramsar wetlands.
The strategy identifies:
- animal pests, weeds and diseases in Northern Plains Region and their preferred control methods
- the values and species that they threaten
- programs and priorities for pest management.
The highest priority pest control programs aim to reduce the impact of:
- feral goats and foxes on populations of brush-tailed rock-wallabies
- foxes on malleefowl
- foxes and feral pigs on ground nesting birds in wetland reserves
- weeds in endangered ecological communities (EECs) and where they impact on threatened species.
