The Victorian Gorse Taskforce (VGT) has developed a survey to gain an understanding of the types of support that communities need from VGT to manage gorse in their local area. The VGT uses government investment to establish and support community-led projects, which aim to eradicate gorse where possible across Victoria. Gorse is a highly invasive weed. It can adversely impact on agriculture, waterways, amenity and native vegetation, as well as harbour pests such as, rabbits and foxes.
In Victoria gorse is:
- Regionally prohibited in the East Gippsland catchment
- Regionally restricted in the Mallee catchment
- Regionally controlled in all other Victorian catchments
RM Consulting Group have been engaged by VGT to run the survey, which seeks information about work done on your property to control gorse.
The results from this survey will help the VGT identify opportunities where we can provide better support to you or your networks. If you know or suspect gorse on your property please take five minutes to fill out the survey so the VGT can work to provide the right support.
The survey should not take any more than 5 to 10 minutes to complete and you can go in the draw to win 1 of 3 $50 Woolworths vouchers. The survey can be accessed via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VGTsurvey
This survey will close 5pm, 19 March 2018.
