Community Landcare Case Study – for the National Wild Dog Action Plan

This project aimed to describe and analyze a ‘community’ Community Landcare Coverapproach by both Landcare Groups (LCGs) and Wild Dog Associations (WDAs) to highlight best practice community approaches, both generally and specifically for wild dog management, as well as advantages and disadvantages of relative community approaches and how people in communities can maintain beneficial relationships to get the most out of their engagement.

The report describes and analyses data curated from a selection of community landcare and wild dog groups, through group member field interviews, recordings and photographs, across five regions of NSW and VIC during January and February 2017.

The interviews give a sense of the actors, roles, structures, resources, approaches, practices, beliefs, assumptions, frustrations, key messages and recommendations from interviewed community members (primary sources), as well as from key supporting people and organisations (secondary participants).  Common themes come from both the LCGs and WDA approaches (and are broadly reflected in support partner contributions), summarized into five themes, (derived from analyzing the communities and their recommendations and requests).
