Property-Based Wildlife Management Plans
Property-based Wildlife Management Plans are property-specific, written documents outlining how the game species will be managed on an individual property or group of properties. The Property-based Wildlife Management Plan is a non-binding partnership arrangement between landowners and other property users, facilitated by staff from the Game Management Unit (GMU).
A Property-based Wildlife Management Plan belongs to the landowner, so the landowner can cancel the Plan at any time. In this way, the landowner stays in control at all times.
Key areas that may be covered in a plan include:
There are Property-based Wildlife Management Plans for over 500 properties in Tasmania, covering in excess of 1.6 million hectares of private and public land including dairying, horticulture, forestry and pastoral operations.
There are also Property-based Wildlife Management Plans on over 600,000 ha of land in NSW, SA and Queensland based on the Tasmanian model.
If you are interested in developing a Property-based Wildlife Management Plan for your property, contact the GMU Officer nearest to you.
