Fox control - Warramate Hills Nature Conservation Reserve

Tuesday 7 November, 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 buried baits containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from November 2017 until April 2018.

Baits will be laid at strategic sites and other known areas of fox habitat within the Warramate Hills Nature Conservation 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 area 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 reserve.
