Watch the video of the webinar
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.
