Developed in 2017, the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy aims to align regional invasive species management goals across the Wide Bay Burnett region.
Following its inaugural year of implementation, the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils and Bundaberg Regional Council are requesting the community to participate in its review.
Environmental and Natural Resources portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said the review of the Regional Biosecurity Strategy was an opportunity for the community to have their say on the future direction of invasive species management within the region.
“Workshops will allow the community to highlight their invasive species concerns for our local government area and beyond, as well as providing an opportunity to meet with Council’s biosecurity staff”, Cr Honor said.
The review of the strategy is part of a larger project funded by the Queensland Government as part of the Better Partnerships Project.
The Wide Bay Burnett local governments are contributing to the project, which has an aim to improve regional biosecurity partnerships across the region.
“The regional workshops will be undertaken across the Wide Bay Burnett local governments during the month of March,” Cr Honor said.
For those unable to attend a workshop, Cr Honor said there was the opportunity to access an online survey to provide their thoughts on the regional biosecurity strategy.
“A link for the online survey can be found on the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils’ website,” he said.
The regional biosecurity workshops for the Bundaberg Region will be held on Tuesday, 12 March 2019 at 9.30am to 2pm at the Bundaberg Multiplex.
