Distribution maps for vertebrate pests

Wild dog map

The NSW Department of Primary Industries periodically collects and collates data and best-available information on the distribution and relative abundance of pest animals throughout NSW.

Surveys are conducted through consultation with land management organisations, including the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and Local Land Services.

The maps below provide a representation of the distribution and relative abundance of many established pest species throughout NSW, at the time of the 2009 and 2016 state-wide surveys.
