The Great Western Woodlands Draft Strategic Weed and Feral Animal Management Plan

Jun 4, 2013


Covering almost 16 million hectares in southern inland WA, the Great Western Woodlands represents the largest and most intact Mediterranean-climate woodland in the world. It is an internationally significant area of great biological richness and cultural and economic importance. In 2010 the State Government released a 10 year conservation strategy for the woodlands: A Biodiversity and Cultural Conservation Strategy for the Great Western Woodlands. The strategy identified weeds and feral animals as a key management priority and in response, the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) has developed the Great Western Woodlands Draft Strategic Weed and Feral Animal Management Plan.

The DEC are now seeking comments on the draft management plan from stakeholders and interested parties.

The closing date for submissions is 21 June 2013, copies of the plan and further details can be downloaded fromthe link below.
