Nasty Weeds and Pests, Please Report

Overview

The following weed and pest species pose significant threat to ACT's plants, animals and fungi. They are capable of invading and degrading native ecosystems. They are yet to become well established either in ACT as a whole or in particular parts of the Territory. Early detection of new outbreaks will help us eradicate these plants or pests from the ACT or key habitats.
