National pest animal coordinator programs extended

The Federal Government is providing $837,500 to extend national wild dog, feral deer and feral cat and fox management coordinator programs to the end of June 2023.

The coordinators help lead the fight against feral pests by supporting and coordinating action by farmers, natural resource management groups, Indigenous groups, and environmental non-government organisations.

They will also work with land managers to raise awareness of the importance of feral animal management and enable efforts to reduce numbers and contain threats.

The funding is the first stage of a $6.27 million commitment to extend national coordinator programs to ensure the continued alignment of on-ground action with national priorities and promote best practice landscape-scale pest animal management across the country.
