Can you help protect SA’s waterways?
Posted on 11/01/2022
Crime Stoppers South Australia wants your help to stop the illegal trade of water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and salvinia (Salvinia spp). Both invasive weeds choke wetlands and waterways, kills native wildlife and reduces opportunities for boating, fishing and swimming.
It is an offence to sell either weed types in SA, including online sales.
If you know or suspect something about the illegal sale of water hyacinth and salvinia spp then we want you to share what you know without saying who you are.
