Help for people to control feral species

IPSWICH landowners who participate in the council's Voluntary Conservation Partnership Programs will benefit from a grant received from South East Queensland Catchments to assist efforts to control feral animals.

Cr Heather Morrow said the program built on existing pest animal management successes across south-east Queensland to reduce the impact of wild dogs, feral pigs, foxes and rabbits.

"Ipswich City Council was successful in obtaining a $12,600 grant to support Council's Voluntary Conservation Partnership program landholders, to improve the coverage and effectiveness of current feral animal activities," Cr Morrow said.

"Feral animals are an absolute scourge of our environment and pose real and clear threats to local wildlife and our treasured biodiversity. That's why programs like this are so important for local landholders who council support with our Conservation Partnership Program, a key plank of the Ipswich Enviroplan."
