Invasive SpeciesAn invasive species is an introduced animal or plant that poses a significant threat to Tasmania's biodiversity, agriculture, community or economy. By being a responsible pet owner, and by reporting sightings of strange or unusual animals and plants to DPIPWE, you can help reduce the impact and spread of invasive species.
DPIPWE's Invasive Species Branch encourages a collaborative response between stakeholders and the community in the effort to protect Tasmania from the impacts of invasive species. Get informed, get involved or get invaded! Read more about the Invasive Species Branch.
