The state government committed $400,000 to deliver follow up work across the state. This did not include assistance for any on-ground activity.
TFGA and DPIPWE conducted a workshop on the island to organise an on-going response to the issue of grave over-population of Bennett’s wallabies on King Island. A working group of KINRM was formed to work on a coordinated program of activities by landholders. At present the fencing and shooting programs are uncoordinated and there appears to be a constant increase in wallaby population growth.
We continue to build wallaby management such as fencing and culling into our biodiversity protection projects.
