Monitoring deer distribution is a fundamental aspect of a focused management approach, offering insights into population dynamics, identifying optimal locations for implementing control measures, and alerting local councils about potential upcoming challenges.

“Monitoring is important for whatever program we do, basically its our key indicator of success. If we don’t have some form of baseline data, its very hard for us to justify how we’ve improved.”
“Deer Scan is a free phone app that can be used by anyone across Australia to record information about deer in their local area. It can be used to record information about sightings, evidence of deer or the impacts of deer. That information can be used to guide local management.”
