This Strategy supersedes the inaugural strategy that commenced in 2012. It was produced with input from agencies involved in pest animal management, including Department of Primary Industries, Local Land Services, National Parks and Wildlife Service, as well as NSW Farmers’ Association and individual farmers.
The new five-year NSW Wild Dog Management Strategy identifies specific actions to minimise wild dog impacts in the State. It builds on our existing wild dog management, planning, research and communication approaches in NSW. It details the roles and responsibilities of Government agencies, industry and the community.
The Strategy will assist in the development of Regional Pest Animal Management Plans in NSW and will help guide how wild dog management will be handled under the new NSW Biosecurity Act.
