Pest animals and insects cause serious economic losses to agricultural production, pose an unacceptable risk of exotic disease, threaten the survival of many native species and cause environmental degradation. Landholders (both public and private) have an obligation under the Rural Lands Protection Act 1998 (RLP Act) to eradicate pest animals on land they own, occupy or manage.
Rural Lands Protection Boards (RLPBs) help landholders by providing advice and assistance in eradicating the declared pest species. RLPBs also work with private and government stakeholders to develop vertebrate pest management plans and cooperative management programs.
Fact sheets on control of rabbits, feral pigs, wild dogs, foxes and locusts available.
