Invasive Species Council
The Invasive Species Council campaigns for stronger laws, polices and programs to keep Australian biodiversity safe from new weeds, feral animals and other invaders.
They are the only national NGO focused on invasive species which, according to the Australian Academy of Science, is the greatest threat to Australian nature after habitat loss. Feral cats alone kill an estimated 75 million native animals across the country every night, and have become our number one predator.
Formed in 2002, they were the first environment group in the world to focus solely on invasive species. They are still the leading Australian NGO in the field. They work on a huge number of vital projects on topics such as feral ants (including the devastating Yellow Crazy Ant), biosecurity, weed management, and island conservation.
