Biodiversity and Invasive Species Management Program - $3.5 million


Grants will be available to natural resource management groups, local councils and Land and Sea Rangers to undertake pest and weed management projects in affected areas.

Groups will support a coordinated rapid response control program to find, contain and/or eradicate any new incursions of identified priority species that have established due to the flooding.

Support will be given to local conservation groups working to protect and progress the recovery of priority and threatened species, increasing their capacity so ongoing flooding impacts can be limited.

Biodiversity conservation work will also inform these recovery efforts, with activities focusing on:

•    mitigating flood impacts on habitat 
•    rehabilitating and reconnecting habitats 
•    actions that measure and improve population trajectories of flood impacted species.
