Water Hyacinth Video Transcript
Narrator: Water Hyacinth - not wanted here!
Water hyacinth is a prohibited weed.
It kills native plants and animals and chokes waterways. This plant is very persistent. Its seeds and roots can lie dormant for at least 20 years.
One plant escaping into waterways can mean disaster for that waterway and all things that live in it.
With your help we can fix this problem. Every plant must be removed by the Department of Primary Industries
To buy or sell water hyacinth is illegal. There are many native water plants that are not dangerous to waterways.
We need your help to control this plant. Call the Department of Primary Industries and we will collect them for free.
