Invasive species have been recognised as the key problem in the Border Rivers-Gwydir catchment which was found in a 2007- 08 survey titled ‘Understanding Natural Resource Management from a Landholders Perspective’. The top four items selected by respondents as a major or moderate problem were pests, including: environmental weeds, introduced animal pests, crop weeds and native pests.
The development of this plan has been initiated by the Border Rivers-Gwydir CMA in partnership with Industry and Investment NSW and the Invasive Animals CRC. The planning process has developed a series of recommendations that will help guide the BR-G CMA in allocating future funding and on- ground project implementation relating to invasive species management. These recommendations have been considered as part of the invasive species plan as they are realistic and can be implemented in a coordinated and strategic way. Ideally, each recommendation will be implemented in the short term however, depending on catchment conditions, funding availability and resources; some may become longer term targets and form part of an ongoing management approach to invasive species.
