Report deer sightings to help in the control of this feral nuisance
Deer have been spotted in more and more areas of our region and, while they may appear cute, they are unfortunately a nasty threat to our native environment. Not only does their over-eating and trampling of plants cause significant negative impact to habitat for other local species, they are also surprising members of the community, appearing in front and backyards and can be a danger on our roads and in urban environments.
To help map the deer, residents can download the feralscan app or visit FeralScan and report any sightings. Doing this contributes to the development of a local area map of wild deer activity, used to guide the control and management of this local pest. The app provides details on how to identify different deer species, how to report a sighting, update on how many sightings have been report and much more.
