About the Invasive Species Council

The Invasive Species Council is a non-government organisation that seeks better laws and policies to protect the Australian environment from weeds, feral animals, insects, pathogens and other invaders. Formed in 2002, we were the first environment group in the world to focus solely on invasive species.

The organisation’s focus is on prevention and early action. Our primary objective is to achieve improvements to state and federal laws, policies, institutions and activities to systematically lower the risk of new invasive species establishing in Australia. The Invasive Species Council increasingly seeks to directly undertake prevention and early action activities including risk identification and on-ground eradication.

Our organisation has an impressive track record of achieving change. Over recent years we played a major role in securing $411 million over ten years to eradicate red fire ants from south east Queensland and to establish the Chief Environmental Biosecurity Officer, co-hosted the inaugural Australian Biosecurity Symposium and jointly conducted ground-breaking research to identify harmful invasive insects that could establish in Australia.

The Invasive Species Council leads the implementation of the Reclaim Kosci campaign. Horses are an important emerging vertebrate pest in Australia that, if not contained and their extent reduced, will impact large areas of Australia. We also lead the Threats to Nature project that seeks an effective national threat abatement system, creates opportunities for collaboration on threat abatement projects and demonstrates the value of community leadership and cross-sectoral collaborations.

Our strategic plan, campaigns and other background information can be found on our website: invasives.org.au.
