Wide Bay Burnett Fighting Back Program

Sep 8, 2020 | Front Page Feature, News

The North Burnett Regional Council alongside Bundaberg and South Burnett Regional Councils have been successful in the application of Commonwealth Funding under the Communities Combating Pest and Weed Impacts During Drought Program.

The program aims to reduce infestations of Prickly Acacia, African Boxthorn and Honey Locust across the region, as well as manage infestations of feral pigs and wild dogs. The programs will be in operation until the end of 2021.

The funding will engage and upskill local pest animal trappers, weed contractors, Aboriginal groups and natural resource management groups, increasing awareness and reporting capabilities.

North Burnett Regional Council Land Protection Officers will be conducting inspections, consultation, treatment and training in the coming months. Landholder assistance and cooperation would be greatly appreciated.
