Biodiversity 2027: Biodiversity Response Planning grants

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:

  1. Whittlesea integrated pest animal management and monitoring program (WIPAMMP)
  2. Birds to Butterfields: Helmeted Honeyeater
  3. Cannibal Creek catchment biodiversity project
  4. Lake Tyers Deer Management Program Trial
  5. Extirpation of Sambar Deer from Wilsons Prom
  6. Mitigating impacts of invasive herbivores on Alpine wetlands
  7. Grampians herbivores – deer
  8. Landscape-scale conservation of threatened invertebrates of the Western Strzeleckis
  9. Building the Bass Coast Biolinks
  10. Sugarloaf Link deer control.
