A new report published by the Invasive Animals CRC makes it clear that feral animals represent one of the major threats to biodiversity. The threat posed by pest animals to biodiversity in New South Wales by staff from the Pest Management Unit in the Department of Environment and Climate Change quantifies the specific biodiversity at risk from invasive animals.
Pest animals are the fourth greatest risk to biodiversity in NSW, behind land clearing, altered fire regimes and weeds. They threaten 40 of the threatened biodiversity in the State. This extensive report contains a wealth of information of interest. Copies can be obtained from the Editor, Dr. Wendy Henderson in the CRC office email@example.com
