12114: Control of Mesquite and Parkinsonia in the Carnarvon region
Mesquite and Parkinsonia are Weeds of National Significance and major pest of the rangelands region.
Both have the ability to degrade the environment and increase costs to the community and pastoralists, forming dense thickets that impede stock movement, increase mustering costs, increase damage to vehicles and equipment and prevent access to waterways and high value areas.
This project aims to control the weeds on over 26 000 hectares in the Shire of Carnarvon by working in partnership with the Carnarvon Recognised Biosecurity Group, Shire of Carnarvon, Department of Parks and Wildlife and Main Roads WA.
