Parks Victoria will be conducting aerial shooting operations on the northern Bogong High Plains and Mt Bogong areas in the Alpine National Park, during the week of 23-27 May, 2022. The intent of the program for this period is to close the majority of the area, as marked on the map attached.
The aim of this program is to reduce deer activity around significant environmental values that are vulnerable to deer impacts, including alpine wetlands.
The areas that will be targeted will be closed. During aerial shooting, you may see helicopters and hear gunshots.
Suitably qualified and experienced contractors have been engaged to deliver the work. They follow all relevant legislation, Codes of Practice and Standard Operating Procedures to ensure that high standards of animal welfare are maintained during operations.
