Rusa deer

In the Northern Territory (NT) rusa deer are found on Groote Eylandt and smaller islands in the Gulf of Carpentaria.


Introduced deer can degrade native vegetation by overgrazing, browsing, trampling, ring-barking and spreading weeds. 

They can be responsible for eroding waterways and decreasing water quality.
