Victoria’s Deer Control Strategy

The Victorian government announced in November 2020 $18.25 million for the Deer Control Program (2021-24) to support the Deer control strategy; plus $4.4 million ongoing from 2024-25.

The program currently supports a number of staff dedicated to deer control in DELWP (a state-wide program manager and 2-3 staff) and Parks Victoria (State-wide Program Manager and 4 regional officers). The program is also funding the development of regional action plans. 

A number of deer control projects have and are in the process of being delivered on public land. For an update of what projects have been delivered and are currently underway click on the link below:
