The Midlands Biosecurity Group was formed to initiate, promote and foster the control of Declared Pests in the Midlands region.
The Midlands Biosecurity Group (MBG) assists land owners and managers in adopting sound biosecurity practices and provides members with a forum to exchange information, advice and assistance. By ensuring clear communication between all relevant stakeholders, the MBG aims to raise awareness and ensure a multi-faceted approach to pest control. Stakeholders include Landholders, Local Government Authorities, State and Federal agencies, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation & Attractions and relevant industry bodies.
The MBG works across the shires of Moora, Dandaragan, Coorow, Carnamah, Three Springs, Mingenew and Irwin. A nil-tenure approach to pest control is taken within the seven shires of the Midlands region as they are connected by waterways, national parks and have similar farming systems.
