What is the Plan?
The National Feral Deer Action Plan aims to limit further spread of feral deer into new areas and reduce the impacts of large populations of feral deer on primary production, communities and the environment.
The Plan will raise awareness of feral deer impacts and control options to encourage early action on all small isolated populations, as well as large populations in priority areas. The Plan also promotes the need to develop and trial new tools, and to build capacity to detect, cull and prevent further spread of feral deer.
The Plan is for land management agencies, groups and organisations, governments, and land managers who are impacted by feral deer, or are likely to be impacted soon
