6. Sustaining the Project


Following the Biosecurity plan is necessary to protect the site from re-invasion by the target species and invasion by new species. This will sustain the benefits of the invasive plant management operation(s).
Monitoring data is also collected so that you can demonstrate the positive outcomes from managing the target species.
NOTE: many invasive plant management projects are ongoing control projects and may never reach this Stage.
