The Cradle Coast Natural Resource Management (CCNRM) region is located in northwest Tasmania and covers approximately one third of the state. Boneseed (Chrysanthemoides monilifera subsp. monilifera (DC.) T.Norl.) is an emerging weed threat in the region and has been recorded at around fifteen sites along the northern coastline and on King Island. Community groups have successfully controlled boneseed at many sites in the region however other sites have had no control.
