Fox control - Belfast Coastal Reserve and Tower Hill State Game Reserve

Saturday 19 May, 2018

Parks Victoria’s conservation management to restore and protect park habitat includes the control of introduced plant and animal species. As part of an ongoing strategy, notice is hereby given that Parks Victoria will be laying buried baits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison)on public land for the control of foxes.

Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid at strategic sites within the following areas

  • Belfast Coastal Reserve from Friday 1 June 2018 until Tuesday 30 April 2019: coastline from the Warrnambool City Council / Moyne Shire Council boundary near Levy’s Point, westwards to Port Fairy Golf Course
  • Tower Hill State Game Reserve from Tuesday 12 June 2018 until Tuesday 30 April 2019: the main ‘islands’ in the centre of the reserve

1080 poison signs will be posted throughout the baited area and members of the public who are living, visiting or working in the above named areas are advised to take particular care not to disturb or interfere with bait stations. Domestic dogs and cats are particularly susceptible to 1080 poison and should be under effective control, muzzled or kept away from the baited areas.
