Fox control – Dandenong Ranges National Park

Monday 14 August, 2017

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 baits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from 15 May 2017 to 30 April 2018.

Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the boundaries of the Dandenong Ranges National Park.

1080 poison signs will be posted throughout the baited area and members of the public who are living, visiting or working in these 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 the public are reminded that domestic pets are not permitted within the boundaries of the National Park.

Operational details may be obtained from Linda Bryant by calling the Parks Victoria Information Centre on 13 1963
