Royalties for Regions
The EWBG has also been successful in securing Royalty for Regions funding through the WA Wild Dog Action Plan. This funding of $93,750 per annum, for the next three years, will be used for wild dog control operations within the EWBG prescribed area. This funding will allow for a decrease in the total amount collected from the Declared Pest Rate from landholders over this period. The group hope in future years there will be more funding opportunities to reduce the financial cost of controlling declared pests for landholders in the eastern wheatbelt.
