Wild dogs — trapping, collaring, baiting, workshops and more in 2020

Wild dogs are a significant problem in Western NSW, causing losses to livestock enterprises, with consequent economic and social impacts. There can also be considerable impacts to the environment and cultural heritage values of the region, through predation on small to medium sized native fauna species, which may be endangered and important totems for Aboriginal communities.

In 2020, a number of new and innovative programs and projects, focussing on wild dogs, will be rolled out across the Western region, following a successful funding application through the Australian Government’s ‘Communities Combatting Pest and Weed Impacts During Drought’ Program.

  • Professional Wild Dog Controller program
  • 'Western Tracks' collaring project
  • seasonal predator program — looking at the year ahead
  • White spaces — filling in the gaps
  • NSW Wild Dog Fence Extension project — opportunities for landholder involvement
  • Pest animal workshops confirmed for February, pest animal expos locked in for June
