Welcome to the Weed Society of Queensland

The members of the Weed Society of Queensland (WSQ) share a common interest in weeds and pest animals and their management. The Society was formed in 1975 with the aim of advancing the understanding and practice of weed management. In recent years the society expanded its scope to include pest animals and the WSQ - Pest Animal Branch was born. The WSQ is one of the seven societies of the Council of Australasian Weed Science Societies (CAWS).

Reducing the impact of weeds and pest animals, and preventing further spread across the vast and varied land types and waterways of Queensland requires on-ground action. This means coordinated action by many land and water managers as well as community volunteers in rural, peri-urban and urban areas.

The Society promotes management of weeds and pest animals through:

  •             our newsletter ‘WeedShine’
  •             publications, social media and multi-media
  •             field days and forums
  •             conferences & symposia
  •             grants, awards and scholarships
  •             public relations and advocacy

Society members are from diverse backgrounds: from practitioners to policy people; landholders to scientists. If you’re passionate about weeds and pest animals we would love to hear from you.
