Biosecurity Surveillance Program
6 December, 2017
A four-year Biosecurity Surveillance Program to monitor declared pest animals and plants on the Fraser Coast was approved today (Wednesday, 6 December) at a Council meeting in Maryborough.
Small Community Development Portfolio Councillor Anne Maddern said the program would confirm the presence or absence of pests and monitor measures taken to control them.
“Under the program officers will carry out inspections and follow up to monitor control programs in place on Council and private land.”
The biosecurity plan covers diseases, viruses, parasites, noxious fish and insects, as well as pest plants such as rat’s tail grass and prickly pear as well as pest animals such as wild dogs, foxes and feral pigs.
