Fox control – East Gippsland parks and reserves

Wednesday 11 April, 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 fluoroacetate (1080 poison)on public land for the control of foxes.

Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid at strategic sites and known areas of fox habitat from Monday 16 April 2018 until Monday 30 July 2018 within the following parks and reserves: Providence Ponds Nature Conservation Reserve, Billabong Flora and Fauna Reserve and Meerlieu Bush 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.
