Northern and Yorke Landscape Board have issued this warning.

Urgent help needed to trace a Water Hyacinth plant, the highly invasive aquatic weed which was sold on Facebook Marketplace by a Gawler-based seller last week.

Can you help?

We’re looking for assistance to trace a Water Hyacinth plant, the highly invasive aquatic weed which was sold on Facebook Marketplace by a Gawler-based seller this week.

This declared pest plant is recognised as one of the world’s worst aquatic weeds as it can quickly choke waterways, outcompete native water plants and cause dam water to stagnate.

We hope to work with the seller, without penalty, to track down the sold plant and ensure all fragments are recovered and destroyed. But we also encourage anyone with information to contact us on 8841 3444. Feel free to share this post too 🙏
