Hi ,

We don't just work on fire ants, but you might think that's the case if you've followed our efforts over the past few months. Thankfully those efforts are now paying off.

With the final decision on fire ant eradication funding to be confirmed in July, it looks like we're just a few states away from securing the needed funds to rid Brisbane's southern suburbs (and Australia) of fire ants - although not straight away, it will take ten years! 

This edition of the Feral Herald has all the latest fire ant news and covers plenty of other issues. Each story reflects the importance of our work in striving to keep Australia free from dangerous new invasive species.

If you're convinced of our worth, don't forget to donate to keep us going. 

Andrew Cox, CEO.

White spot disease

Spot the difference: Contrast the government’s response to white spot disease in Logan River prawns to the indifference from authorities when a new environmental invader arrives.
