pdfPlanning Document Release date:


The Cape York Peninsula Pest Management Strategy (CYPPMS) is a broad over-arching document that establishes a Cape-wide planning framework for integrated pest management by government, community, industry and individuals. The Strategy and action plans have been developed with community consultation to help achieve a coordinated and effective approach to pest management throughout Cape York Peninsula. The direction for pest management over the next six years on CYP will focus on the implementation of Local Government, Community and property pest management plans with the involvement, knowledge and support of the general community and Government agencies. Community ownership and involvement is paramount to the success of implementing the strategy and the on-ground control of pest plants and animals in the region.
