Alert pest animals are introduced animals that are declared under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004. Landowners must report any on their property as soon as possible.
They are a serious threat but have little or no impact because they:
- have not yet arrived in South Australia
- may only be here in very low numbers
- are held in captivity.
- Contact your regional Natural Resources office for advice
- View the brochure Animal pests: what you need to know ()
- Listen to cane toad calls () by David Stewart
- Listen to Indian Myna bird calls.
Early detection is important so the animal can be destroyed before it becomes a problem.
