Recreation in natural areas

Don't be a Phytophthora Dieback carrier. Mud sticks! Start out clean, stay clean.

Phytophthora (pronounced fy-TOFF-thora) is a devastating plant killer causing Phytophthora Dieback disease and infection is permanent. It is a soil borne water mould which spreads naturally in soil moisture or roots. It is spread much faster and further by humans moving even small amounts of contaminated soil or plant material. So when you’re in the bush please take care not to spread this devastating plant disease.
