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.  The investment guidelines are being developed now and open for grant bids form agencies and the community shortly.
