This Plan outlines Western Australia’s approach to managing existing and potential invasive species that can harm the state’s economy, environment and people. Invasive species in the context of this Plan refers to plants and vertebrate animals that can cause undesirable impacts on economic, environmental and social assets and values.

The Objectives of the Plan are:

  • improved priority setting and transparency in declaration processes in invasive species management
  • coordinated prevention, eradication and response plans are implemented for high priority invasive species
  • partnerships between community, industry and government are achieving effective containment and control of widely established invasive species
  • efficiently applied regulation underpins effective control of invasive species
  • the community, industry and government have relevant information to inform and report on invasive species management.
