The North Coast Local Land Services advises that the Draft North Coast Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan 2018-2023 is now on public exhibition.

We’re changing how pest animals are managed in NSW.
The NSW Government is taking a regional approach to pest animal management through the development of regional strategic pest animal management plans.

Major pest animals such as rabbits, carp, pigs, foxes and dogs to name a few are estimated to cost the NSW economy approximately $170 million annually. The plans will be developed in consultation with stakeholders and the community to ensure strong and responding pest animal risk management, that is outcomes focused and based on regional priorities.

A regional approach to pest animal management will ensure that pest animal management tools, actions and investments are catered to the needs and impacts experienced in each region.

The Draft Regional Strategic Pest Animal Management Plan will be available from 8 March.
