Weed Management

Bitou bush is a weed of National significance; it was introduced to Jervis Bay Territory to stabilise sand dunes and has spread throughout the coastal areas of the Park and community land. It grows aggressively and competes with plants that provide traditional sources of bush tucker and/or are used for cultural practices. It is important to the community that this weed is controlled within their lands. This control program employs one fulltime employee with potential subject to funding to employ more. The community has hosted community employment and training programs on its lands using Bitou bush as the target species. The bitou bush eradication program is continuing with positive results.

Sea Spurge is another infestation that is being tackled as funding is available.
