Noxious & environmental weeds & plant pathogens

Weeds are a major threat to remnant vegetation and the fauna that rely on locally native plants for survival. Weed invasion is responsible for the loss of many species of plants and animals from areas across Australia, including the Mornington Peninsula. Weeds also impact on waterways, stock, pets, crops, tourism, health (e.g. allergies) and safety (e.g. road visibility), gardens and the landscape of an area.
