Lake Eyre Basin booklets

Priority Threat Management of invasive animals to protect biodiversity in the Lake Eyre Basin

CSIRO needed to present the results of their research in the Lake Eyre Basin to two different audiences, so we developed both a shorter overview document and a fuller study with more detail.

Lake Eyre Basin is one of the largest internally-draining river systems in the world and makes up one-sixth of the Australian continent. Its vast area contains many invasive animals, including camels, goats, rabbits, cane toads, foxes, feral cats, pigs and a range of aquatic species. The books suggest appraised strategies for managing these animals to conserve biodiversity in the region.

Critically, it shows that considering climate change impacts changes the decisions on how best to approach mitigating these threats.
