  • Support the creation and implementation of recognised biosecurity groups (RBGs) across the NAR.
  • Support and educate land managers to ensure biodiversity co-benefits when managing invasive species for agricultural purposes.
  • Support the creation and implementation of relevant invasive species management schemes.
  • Work collaboratively to plan, implement and communicate priority actions for invasive species research, management and control.
  • Implement effective control measures at a local scale where priority biodiversity assets are being threatened.
