Bob Brown Foundation is calling on Tasmanians to support a new project by the Invasive Species Council, called 'Tassie Deer Spotters'. It is a citizen science project aiming to document the spread of feral deer in Tasmania.
"Deer are running rampant across Tasmania, with numbers potentially near 100,000. This feral species is now impacting the national parks and reserves in this state. I urge all Tasmanians to join this important project if they can. I have added my own sightings of deer at Liffey for example. Anyone with a smartphone can add their sightings and help build knowledge of the threat to native vegetation and native animals by deer," said Bob Brown.
"This is a project that the Tasmanian Government should have taken up at least five years ago to help stem the spread of feral deer across the state and particularly into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area," said Bob Brown.
