Wild Deer in Victoria

Sunday, 17 July 2022 - 11:00am to 11:30am

Wild deer pose a growing threat to Victoria's biodiversity, cultural heritage, and state infrastructure. With an estimated population of one million deer, the Victorian government has published a new Deer Strategy  outlining a regional partnership approach to the state's deer problem.

Earth Matters speaks with conservationists Alex Maisey (Sherbrooke Lyrebird Survey Group) and Peter Jacobs (INVASIVES Species Council) about their thoughts on the recent plan and what needs to be done to address this pest.
