An activity guideline for
Weed and Feral Animal Control
The Eastern Kuku Yalanji people through the Jabalbina Yalanji Land Trust are the owners and managers of the Yellow Zone Nature Refuge. Land holders have a responsibility for managing pest plants and animals on their lands. There is a legal responsibility to control declared pest species but no obligation to control or manage non-declared species. Eastern Kuku Yalanji People have the right to manage pest plants and pest animals on their ordinary freehold and on Aboriginal Land Act freehold areas outside the nature refuge area. Eastern Kuku Yalanji People have the right to manage pests within the nature refuge area by the rules outlined in this guideline. Definitions: Declared pests: Pests listed in the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002
and other legislation. See Attachment A for example legislation and pest listings. Non-declared pests: Plants or animals that are not indigenous to an area, but are not recognised in legislation as having a pest status. Note: This guideline relates to the Conservation Agreement and Cooperative Management Agreement for the Yellow Zone and that in addition to the requirements outlined in this document there is an obligation to respect the cultural lore and customs of the land.
