Funding grants and opportunities
Funding and support that may be available in your area
It is important to keep a watch for possible funding opportunities to help with feral goat control in your region. Many existing control programs rely on landholders and the support of local pest control groups. Feral goats are a major pest species that threaten agricultural production, our environment and communities. They could present a risk for exotic disease (such as foot-and-mouth disease) if it were accidently introduced to Australia.
Some potential avenues for funding are listed below. Ensure you contact your neighbours, relevant state/territory government agency, regional NRM group, and local pest control groups in your area to find out whether you (or others in your area) are eligible for funding or other support resources. Working to control feral goats in a group is the best way to reduce their numbers and the damage they cause in your region.
