Draft threat abatement plan to reduce the impacts of exotic rodents on biodiversity on Australian offshore islands of less than 100 000 hectares

In 2006 the Australian Government listed exotic rodents on islands as a key threatening process under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) and initiated the development of a threat abatement plan for rats and mice on islands less than 100 000 hectares in area. The draft threat abatement plan describes research, management and other actions to protect native species and ecological communities from exotic rodents.
