Introduced plants and animals

The Eurobodalla Shire, like many other parts of Australia suffers from introduced pests. These pests impact significantly upon our local biodiversity and can also significantly impact upon our local agricultural systems.

Feral animals are considered to be threatening our local ecosystems and agricultural communities. These feral animals are controlled where possible according to local management plans and/or Flora and Fauna recovery plans. Eurobodalla Shire partners with other agencies and landowners, to protect species that are threatened.

Council’s Invasive Fauna Control Program is run by the Invasive Species Team who may be contacted on 02 4474 1000 or by emailing council@esc.nsw.gov.au.
