Tasmania needs to act fast if it is to protect its farming communities and incredible Wilderness World Heritage Area from skyrocketing numbers of feral deer.

The Tasmanian Government has released a draft deer management plan, but without urgent amendments it is set to fail.

Please make an urgent submission to the draft plan calling for ten key amendments that will result in a feral deer management plan that is focused on protecting what’s best about Tasmania, its clean, green economy and incredible wilderness areas.

Your feedback must be received by 5pm on 3 December 2021.

You can make a quick submission using this page or make a more detailed submission using our online submission guide.
