Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries is encouraging the community to have a say on the management of pest animals as the impact of pest animals on primary production and on our natural environment can be severe. 

“The draft regional strategic pest animal plans have been developed and are currently on public exhibition,” Kevin Humphries said. 

“The plans identify pest animal risks present in each region, set regional pest animal management priorities, and provide for the coordinated management of pest animals within and across Local Land Services regions.

“This is a direct response from the NSW Government to the Natural Resource Commission review into the management of pest animals.

“Managing the impact of pest animals not only has positive outcomes for primary industries, but also for the natural environment and local communities within the region.”

The plans have been developed collaboratively through regional pest animal committees and alongside Local Land Services, to establish strategies and actions to achieve goals that focus on shared responsibility for pest animal management.

The current consultation period is an opportunity for land managers, organizations and interested community members to provide feedback on the management of pest animals in their region.

“It is vital these plans are developed with the community to ensure a strong and responsive pest animal risk management that is outcomes focused and based on regional priorities. 

Anyone who has a concern about pest animal management is encouraged to comment on the draft plans.

The plan will be on public exhibition until Friday 20 April 2018.
