Dear Banyule City Council, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 can you tell me if the council employees a wildlife ranger. If the answer is yes, how many are employed by council, what hours do they work and what is their role.

Yours faithfully,

Hi Jason,


In answer to your question: No, we don’t employ Wildlife Rangers as such.
Our 10 Bushland Management Unit staff are referred to as Park Rangers and
their key role is revegetation of indigenous flora species. They work a 76
hour 9 day fortnight.


Our role as far as indigenous wildlife goes is confined to nest boxes and
fauna monitoring. Feral animals such as foxes, India Mynas and rabbits are
controlled by contract pest exterminators.


If you have any further enquiries please feel free to contact me on 9490
