Managing peafowl in the ACT

In 2017-18, the ACT Government prepared a draft Peafowl Management Plan to implement a more strategic approach to the management of the ACT's peafowl populations and to address ongoing concerns from the community about the negative impacts of the feral peafowl, particularly in the Narrabundah area.

The draft plan was made available for comment. At the close of the public consultation period it was clear that a majority of respondents were in favour of retaining the peafowl population in Narrabundah. In response, the ACT Government decided not to proceed with the draft Plan and will not be removing the peafowl.

However the issues raised in support of removing the peafowl remain and need to be addressed. The ACT Government is currently preparing additional information to assist the community which will be made available on this page soon.
