Regional pest management strategies

We prepare pest management strategies for each region in New South Wales.

We work to identify the highest priority programs and focus on these. This ensures that we plan for actions that are achievable and can deliver measurable outcomes.

Our regional pest management strategies recognise that pest species are a problem across the landscape. Programs are developed and often carried out in collaboration with:

  • neighbours
  • other government agencies
  • livestock health and pest authorities
  • local councils
  • regional pest committees
  • universities
  • community groups.
