The presence of wild deer is of growing interest for many community members. To assess the perception of the community to wild deer, Upper Murrumbidgee Landcare and associated Landcare groups have developed the following survey. The survey results will help to voice community expectations on wild deer issues and guide community information events.

If you live in south-east NSW, eastern Victoria regions or the ACT, we would appreciate your taking the time to complete the following survey. It should take about 10 minutes of your time. Your responses are voluntary, anonymous and will be confidential. You may leave some questions blank. All responses will be pooled together and analysed as a group. A report on the results will be provided to the community and other relevant agencies through participating Landcare groups.
