Have your say on the draft threat abatement plan for competition and land degradation by unmanaged goats20 Nov 2023
The Department of Climate Change, Energy, Environment and Water are seeking feedback on a draft threat abatement plan for competition and land degradation by unmanaged goats.
The plan sets out actions to reduce the impacts of unmanaged goats on the environment, agriculture and communities.
Unmanaged goats are found in every state and territory. They compete with native fauna and can cause damage to soil and vegetation.
The draft plan was developed in consultation with a range of experts and builds upon the current threat abatement plan.
At the end of the comment period, the department will use the feedback to inform the final plan, which the Minister for the Environment will consider in early 2024.
Have your say by 7 February 2024.
Feedback will be used to inform the final threat abatement plan. The department has provided the following information:
