Parks Victoria’s conservation management to restore and protect park habitat includes the control of introduced plant and animal species. As part of an ongoing strategy, notice is hereby given that Parks Victoria will be conducting a controlled, safe and humane deer control night operation targeting Fallow and Sambar Deer at Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve from 12 to 15 March 2019 inclusive and 18 to 22 March inclusive.

Safety is of utmost importance to Parks Victoria. The program is conducted under strict supervision following comprehensive safety procedures. The affected areas within Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve will be closed during periods of control.  Signs will be displayed at all official entrance points to the reserve when shooting is in progress.
