Connect: South Australia

In South Australia, pest animal management is a shared responsibility involving landholders & the community, Biosecurity SA and the eight Natural Resources Management (NRM) Boards. Farmers have primary responsibility to manage biosecurity pests (animals and plants) and threats on their properties.

Biosecurity SA coordinates state-wide responses to incursions and management of existing pest animal species to minimise impact on primary industries, natural ecosystems and public safety.

Each NRM Board develops its own Regional NRM Plan and local programs. They also have responsibility for ensuring declared pest species are effectively managed within their region.

The map shown is divided into the eight NRM regions. Click on a region of interest to find out more about groups, agencies and organisations in that region involved in pest animal management.

Some regions are yet to be populated with local group details. We aim to provide contact details of agencies, organisations and groups that are active in pest animal management and can provide people with services, useful advice or assistance – both at policy and practical on-ground levels.
