This involves implementing the Townsville City Biosecurity Plan, establishing practices to prevent the introduction of new pests and strategies to eradicate existing pests in small numbers. It also includes taking measures to reduce the risks associated with established pests in Townsville, liaising with land managers, and enforcing the Biosecurity Act 2014.
