National maps

Many of the national maps provided here were originally published in: West, P. (2008). Assessing Invasive Animals in Australia 2008. National Land & Water Resources Audit and Invasive Animals CRC, Canberra.

Information presented in these maps is reported at a nationally relevant reporting scale of 0.5 degree (equivalent to 1:100 000 or approximately 50km x 50km) . These maps were largely developed from finer-scale data available from the relevant state/territory government authorities.

Maps are presented for invasive animal occurrence, density, abundance, distribution (spatial pattern), perceived trend in abundance, and data quality (based on underpinning datasets across the reporting area). For further information see the report listed above.

National maps by species:

Cane toad Wild dog Feral pig
