Carrots laced with RHDV1-K5 — the first rabbit biocontrol agent released in 20 years — are laid out in Western Australia's Cape Range National Park in 2017.

The Centre for Invasive Species Solutions works with Australia’s leading researchers to understand the benefits of managing invasive species and the impacts they have on our environment, native animals and primary production.

We develop solutions to improve the detection and monitoring of invasive species, inform the response of authorities to new incursions, and control pest animals.

We develop research pipelines that support the creation of new genetic and biocontrol technologies.

We translate invasive species science into practical information that informs the management of pest animals and weeds.

And our National Wild Dog Management Coordinator and National Feral Cat and Fox Management Coordinator drive community adoption of best practices, tools and technologies.
