Fire and Weeds

Weeds, especially pasture escapees like Gamba and Mission Grass increase the risk that uncontrolled fires pose to Top End forests and woodland. Parks and Wildlife, the Gamba Army, Landcare Groups and Adopt a Spot volunteers are all working to reduce these weeds in Casuarina Coastal Reserve.

This recent research highlights the effects of not acting quickly and decisively to control weed infestations.
