Biosecurity Plan

Townsville residents enjoy a great lifestyle supported by our natural environment. Feral animals and pest plants are non-native species that can affect our lifestyle and cause environmental and economic harm.

The Townsville Biosecurity Plan drives local action to reduce the impacts of these pests while also taking measures to contain established pests in Townsville.

A Townsville Local Government Area Biosecurity Plan 2017-2021 (DRAFT) is available for review and feedback until 20 November 2017.
