The Biodiversity Response Planning Program is implementing Victoria’s plan for Biodiversity, Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037, in different places. Grants from the Biodiversity Response Planning program were allocated in mid-2018 for completion in 2021.
There are 10 projects targeting at least partly deer, along with other control programs totalling $2,763,822 over three years. For some projects it is difficult to separate investment directly in deer control. DELWP reports that the deer allocation is $2,040,000.
The projects are:
- Whittlesea integrated pest animal management and monitoring program (WIPAMMP)
- Birds to Butterfields: Helmeted Honeyeater
- Cannibal Creek catchment biodiversity project
- Lake Tyers Deer Management Program Trial
- Extirpation of Sambar Deer from Wilsons Prom
- Mitigating impacts of invasive herbivores on Alpine wetlands
- Grampians herbivores – deer
- Landscape-scale conservation of threatened invertebrates of the Western Strzeleckis
- Building the Bass Coast Biolinks
- Sugarloaf Link deer control.
