How to use DeerScan in 2019
DeerScan is a free community resource for landholders, community groups and pest controllers.

It can be used to inform your neighbours and local biosecurity authorities about current deer problems. You can use DeerScan to record new (and historical) observations of deer in your local area, as this will help to build a detailed picture of deer populations.

Please note: All deer information you enter will be

managed securely and discretely.

Deer are a risk to motorists and road users

Feral deer are increasing being hit by motorists on Australian roadways. Take care when driving in areas where deer have been seen previously, and report collisions with deer (or incidents) into DeerScan to help authorities identify high risk areas.

Alert local biosecurity groups about feral deer

Reducing the impacts and problems caused by feral deer requires a coordinated and collaborative approach at a regional scale. Biosecurity organisations across Australia are now connected to DeerScan.
Information you record in DeerScan can be supplied to local biosecurity authorities on your behalf to help reduce the impacts that deer are causing
