3. Please identify any declared pests – or any other pests – of which you are aware on the Gold Coast and discuss how these pests impact on you?
A declared pest is a plant or animal that is listed Class 1, 2 or 3 in the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Regulation 2003.
Declared pests pose a real threat to the state's industries, natural resources, environment and human welfare. Bio-security is important to prevent, respond and recover from pests and diseases that threaten our economy and environment.
Council works with state and federal government agencies to manage declared pests that may affect bio-security.
