Overview of the Limestone Coast Pest Management Strategy

The Limestone Coast Pest Management Strategy aims to provide a strategic approach to minimise detrimental impacts on the region's environment, economy and community. Pest populations need to be risk assessed to provide a framework for a coordinated and proactive approach.

Review Process

The Landscape SA Act 2019 requires that Landscape Boards provide leadership and direction in pest plant and animal control for their regions.

The former SE NRM Board's Pest Management strategy was first released in 2009 and has provided the basis for pest plant and animal monitoring and management until 2020. A review of the 2009 strategy is being undertaken to ensure that the basis of this work remains relevant.

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board has partnered with Rural Solutions SA to ensure coordination and timely delivery of the review. The Department of Environment and Water Geographical Information System (GIS) team provided ongoing support for mapping services regarding pest plant and animal populations.

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board conducts risk assessments as a scientific tool to understand the priority pest management actions that will support land managers across all of the land uses in our region.

The Limestone Coast Landscape Board values its partnerships with rural landholders, industry stakeholders and the wider community, and invites your feedback on the Pest Risk Assessment component of the strategy.
