Community members can do their part to help the environment by keeping an eye out for locally declared invasive pest plants.
There are a number of invasive plants targeted for control in the Bundaberg Region due to serious environmental, economic and social impacts, including Easter Cassia, Leucaena, Cocos palms and Brazilian cherry.
These plants are listed as declared under Bundaberg Regional Council’s Biosecurity Plan and the Biosecurity Act 2014.
Landholders are required to control these weeds and replace them with more appropriate species.
