Cape York Weeds and Feral Animals Inc. (CYWAFA) is working with Cape York land managers to reduce the economic and environmental impacts of high priority weeds.

In early February this year, CYWAFA conducted an Agricultural Chemical Distribution Control (ACDC) course in the Cooktown region. These first eight participants now have the knowledge and skills to do battle with invasive weeds, and have learned the theory behind the use of weed control chemicals that is needed before they head out to the field and put their theory into practice.

This project is supported by Cape York NRM through funding from the Queensland Government Department of Agriculture and Fisheries Feral Pest Initiative.
