Weeds & Pest Animals

The Barcaldine Regional Council is dedicated to limiting the economic, environmental and social impacts of weeds and pest animals.  This will be achieved by the eradication of as many species as possible, reducing the extent of major weeds, and the integrated, coordinated control of pest animals. 

Below are Class 2 Weeds of National Significance (WONS) that can be found in the Barcaldine Regional Council area. If you think you may have seen any of these, please notify your local Rural Lands Officer.
