2018-19 Weed and pest animal drought project

The 2018-19 Pest and Weed Drought Program, funded by the Australian Government, was administered by Local Land Services.

Funding of $1.5 million was allocated to a range of organisations and community groups from across the state to assist land managers to reduce grazing pressure and stock losses caused by pest animals, as well as to manage the spread of weeds.

The below 14 groups and organisations were successful in their project proposals.
