Sign the petition to stop the trail of destruction
Plagues of feral deer are pushing our precious places and wildlife to the edge.
Please act today, before it is too late.
Victoria’s feral deer problem stands as a stark warning – a plague of already over a million has taken over most of the state’s national parks including fragile alpine regions.
And NSW, Tasmania and South Australia aren’t far behind.
Iconic natural treasures like the Blue Mountains, North Coast rainforests, the Grampians, the Limestone Coast and Tassie’s Wilderness World Heritage Area are being stripped, trashed and eroded, leaving critically endangered aussie battlers like the smoky mouse and the southern brown bandicoot with their homes and food eaten away or trampled into the ground.
Even more concerning, their numbers have grown far faster than usual as regular control procedures were paused during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
It has been a perfect storm and we are rapidly approaching the point of no return when deer numbers become so large that management becomes impossible.
We URGENTLY need an intervention to protect our national parks with species found nowhere else on Earth, before they are destroyed forever.
Sign now and help us reach our goal of 50,000 voices!
We will take your support to Federal Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek, calling for increased funding and action to stop invasive species-led destruction, deaths and extinctions in Australia.
