Fellow Cactus Warriors
Have you seen the latest issue of RACV’s Royal Auto magazine?
It contains an alarming article promoting the sale and cultivation of cacti! Online here:
We will send a letter to the editor with some facts and a photo, from Tarrangower Cactus Control Group.
We’re sending out a plea to encourage other cactus warriors and property owners to also send an email. The more responses they get the more likely they are to believe us!
Just a short email to
to let them know that cactus is not ‘sexy’ in the country, it’s an extremely invasive weed. Introduced species do escape from gardens and end up devastating our natural environment and farms.
Please forward this plea to others.
