The PHBG aims to follow up local weed reports by validating the report and initiating communication with the landholder. 

The group can provide information, support and equipment hire to assist landholders to remove declared pests on their properties. 

To enable the PHBG to validate reports please provide accurate location and/or address details as well as information on the size and characteristics of the infestation.  

All reports are confidential.

What if my Weed Report is on public land?

The PHBG have developed a program that reduces the impact from declared pests on landholders from publicly managed land. 

Our Program Manager, Megan LeRoy, has been undertaking site visits to identify problematic feral animals and weeds on publicly managed land.

These activities form part of the new Cross tenure Invasive Species Program (CrISP) which seeks to value add to the control of declared pests on publicly managed land in order to reduce the negative impacts felt by landholders. 

The three year project will identify hotspots where declared pests are impacting local landholders on public land and fund control.

Megan is keen to connect with land managers across the Peel Harvey to map hot spot areas that could become part of the CrISP Program.
