Wild deer are present in all Australian states and territories, and there is increasing concern about their economic, environmental and social impacts. In response to these concerns, the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (IACRC) hosted a workshop in Adelaide on 17−18 November 2016. The aim of the workshop was to identify national actions and priorities for research and innovation to improve understanding and management of wild deer impacts in Australia. Twenty-nine people, representing all states and territories except NT, participated in the workshop. This presentation will summarise the key outcomes of the workshop, including the research and innovation actions identified by participants as critical for addressing knowledge gaps in four main areas: (i) deer impacts, (ii) deer management tools and systems, (iii) monitoring deer distribution and abundance, and (iv) community engagement, use and awareness of deer and their impacts.
