Do you have a view about the numbers of deer around your area?

In response to the growing interest of many community members with the presence of wild deer in their region, local Landcare groups have joined forces to investigate concerns over wild deer and developed a survey to gauge landholder’s perceptions on a range of deer issues.

The survey is open to all landholders in south east NSW, boarding Victorian regions and the ACT.

This survey provides an opportunity for landholders to express their view of wild deer, provide observations on deer species and abundance, document whether wild deer are causing an impact and convey any concerns they might have on the management of wild deer.

The survey is available here. It should take 10 minutes to complete. Landcare would greatly appreciate your participation in the survey.

If you have any queries or require further information please contact Georgeanna Story, Upper Murrumbidgee Landcare Coordinator, on 0429 7799 28 or upper.murrumbidgee@gmail.com.
