Regional strategic pest animal management

As a landowner, it’s your responsibility to manage pest animals on your land.

Your Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan is a vital tool to help coordinate pest control between landholders.

It provides a practical and regional approach to managing pests posing a biosecurity threat.

Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plans work to:

  • reduce the social, environmental and financial impact of pest animals in NSW
  • improve community participation in biosecurity management Increase numbers of well-trained and resourced landowners
  • eliminate or prevent the spread of new invasive species
  • reduce the impact of widespread invasive species
  • ensure NSW can manage invasive species for the future.
