Have Your Say – draft Peafowl Management Plan

The ACT Government has developed a draft Peafowl Management Plan (the Plan) and is seeking your feedback.

Following the peafowl trapping and relocation program undertaken in 2015, the ACT Government committed to implementing a more strategic approach to the management of the ACT’s feral peafowl populations. This Plan has been developed to address ongoing community concerns.

A range of options have been considered as outlined in the Plan, and it is proposed to implement an annual trapping program to reduce feral peafowl numbers. We understand the negative impacts that feral peafowl have on local residents, however they also pose a substantial threat to our native flora and fauna, particularly if the feral peafowl population expands into nearby nature reserves.

Consultation on the Plan closes Friday 8 June 2018.
