THIS Novem­ber, north­ern NSW res­i­dents can have their say in lo­cal wild dog man­age­ment plans and ac­tiv­i­ties by par­tic­i­pat­ing in a tar­geted sur­vey.

NSW Depart­ment of Pri­mary In­dus­tries (DPI) econ­o­mist Sala­hadin Khairo said the sur­vey was de­signed to de­tect ar­eas where wild dogs im­pacted on lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and to iden­tify the best man­age­ment op­tions.

“We are tar­get­ing a di­verse com­mu­nity of pro­duc­ers, small land­hold­ers and peo­ple liv­ing in peri-ur­ban ar­eas, where wild dogs are found,” Mr Khairo said.

“Up to 800 lo­cal res­i­dents will be con­tacted by email, mo­bile and land­line, and by post to, en­sure we reach peo­ple whose lives are af­fected by wild dogs. The in­for­ma­tion they pro­vide will help bet­ter di­rect re­sources to man­age wild dog im­pacts.”
