About the report
This report provides information to the Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) in relation to 'NHT project 40977 — A project that improves Australia's ability to protect its island habitats from feral animals'. This final report consists of two documents, both provided as hard copy and as electronic files. The first is this report, which describes the project and its outcomes. The second is a spreadsheet containing the specified information on Western Australian islands.
In brief, the contract required the provision of information relating to Western Australian islands and the exotic mammals that have been recorded to occur on them. It also sought information on archipelagos where an exotic mammal may, once established on one island, disperse quickly to others (including small islets), information relating to legislation and management plans in place to regulate or control the introduction of feral mammals to WA islands and, where already available, information on the occurrence of feral animals on the offshore islands for other Australian States and Territories.
