Managing priority weed threats in the Western region

Projects can no longer be submitted. Following a two month process, Western Local Land Services were able to approve five applications, all of which seek to improve and sustain the condition of natural resources in the Western region by implementing control measures for weeds.

As a result of the five projects, it is expected 15,000 hectares of area will be treated for Mesquite and Boxthorn.
