The Topic

Feral deer typically live and move across a large landscape that may involve several properties. The actions of individual property owners and public land managers to control deer will have limited success unless there is a collective and coordinated approach.

It is now becoming more common for local groups to form and take a collaborative approach to managing the impacts of feral deer in the landscape by raising awareness, working together and learning from each other.

We will hear from a number of people that are in various stages of supporting the formation of local deer control collectives and learn from their experiences.

These include the: 

  • Cardinia Deer Management Coalition.
  • South Gippsland Landcare Network.
  • Upper Murray Landcare Network
  • Harrietville Community Forum.

We will also hear from the National Feral Deer Action Plan team for guidance and how they can help with community-led programs.
