The WA State Government's Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) manages pests and feral animals in Western Australia under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007.  

This is done through policy development, risk assessment, research and development, provision of technical advice and information, implementation of regulation, emergency response, property inspections, industry liaison, and the planning and coordination of significant species control/eradication programs.

The Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 states that landholders are required to control pests on their properties. For advice on pests and feral animals visit the DPIRD website or contact the Pest and Disease Information Service (PaDIS).
