Fox control - Warramate Hills Nature Conservation Reserve

Tuesday 27 November, 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 deploying Canid Pest Ejector bait stations containing Sodium Monofluoroacetate (1080 poison) on public land for the control of foxes. Canid Pest Ejectors offer increased effectiveness and a safer mode of controlling foxes. Baits containing 1080 poison will be laid from 30 November 2018 until 31 April 2019.

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 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 may be at risk if they enter the reserve.
