Map and monitor with WildDogScan

Stakeholders should be clear about what will be monitored during their program.

While the preceding steps cover what type of monitoring is to be done, there should also be discussion about exactly what information must be collected, and why. Some issues to consider before monitoring  begins include:

  • Who is the information for and how will they use it?
  • Who will gather the information?
  • Who will analyse the information?
  • What type of strategy will be put in place to ensure collected data  are promptly fed back (eg to landholders or agencies) in an appropriate and useful form?

WildDogScan (part of the FeralScan program) is a free monitoring and mapping resource for landholders, community groups and pest controllers.

Use WildDogScan to

  • map wild dog activity,
  • document wild dog problems,
  • inform your neighbours and local biosecurity authorities, and
  • identify priority areas for control.

You can access WildDogScan via the website – www.wilddogscan.org.au or download the ‘FeralScan’ App and follow the wild dog prompts
