PestSmart Toolkit

The PestSmart Toolkit provides information and guidance on best-practice invasive animal management on several key vertebrate pest species including rabbits, wild dogs, foxes, feral pigs, feral cats, carp, and tilapia. Information will be provided in various forms such as fact sheets, case-studies, technical manuals and scientific reports. This end-user centered suite of products is being developed by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (IA CRC) as the culmination of seven years of research and development over a diverse range of projects. This section also provides information and links to specific resources on themes such as animal welfare, vertebrate pest policy, social issues and risk assessment. View the PestSmart YouTube Channel for video clips on best practice control methods for pest animal management.
