Priority Actions test

Review and refine collaborative prioritisation frameworks to factor in projected future climate change impacts.

Why it is important?

Building on existing prioritisation frameworks to take account of the need to respond to, and prepare for, future invasive species threats will be critical to maximising limited resources to build ecosystem resilience.

Develop a region-wide succession plan for ensuring the retention of technical skills and knowledge in the region (initially related to invasive species, but could be expanded to NRM in general).

Why it is important?

The Wet Tropics has attracted professionals in this area for decades and there is an enormous amount of expertise, skills and knowledge already within the region. It is critical to make sure that we don’t lose this expertise, and that we are building the next generation of experts and professionals in this area.

Involve the community in conducting a comprehensive eradication program for Yellow Crazy Ants and Electric Ants, using a range of innovative and traditional approaches.

Why it is important?

These species pose a significant threat to local habitats, wildlife and people's lifestyles.  The community can provide a rapid-response unit to mobilise quickly to control new outbreaks and can effectively monitor control success.

Investigate and implement coordinated and innovative biosecurity measures to reduce the impact of feral pests on natural and productive systems.

Why it is important?

Using a coordinated, collaborative, innovative approach to feral animal management will make the most of limited resourcing and maximise the efforts of all involved, to provide the most effective control possible.

Develop collaborative, practical biosecurity protocols and undertake an integrated approach to managing invasive species.

Why it is important?

Protocols which focus on preventing weeds from arriving and establishing and providing access to good information and advice can make the most of the limited time and resources available for biosecurity.  A collaborative approach provides landholders with a united voice on the issue of invasive species, providing a better opportunity to instigate and maintain action.
