Local Land Services are 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 at www.lls.nsw.gov.au/pestplan and

three community information sessions are being held. All

sessions will commence at 11.00 am and conclude at 1.00 pm
