Buffel grass is an introduced plant found across Central Australia which can cause damage in the long term.

Buffel grass is usually used for cattle food in the short term, but in the long term, it can cause damage to an ecosystem.

A grassroots organisation in Alice Springs launched a short movie about the plant and the consequences to the environment if it’s not treated properly.
