South East Local Land Services and Boorowa Community Landcare Group (BCLG) are inviting Boorowa farmers to take part in the Feral Fighters community fox baiting program.

Feral Fighters is a community-based initiative to strategically target pest animals at a landscape scale through coordinated group baiting control programs. Foxes prey on Australian native wildlife such as ground nesting birds, small reptiles and mammals and have contributed to a number of these native animals becoming extinct or endangered. As well as protecting native wildlife, group control programs can increase lambing percentages when baiting is conducted across multiple properties.

134 landholders participated in the autumn baiting program, distributing over 6500 baits across 55,000ha.

By registering with South East Local Land Services to become a Feral Fighter you will receive:

  • The first 40 1080 baits free during the 2019 campaign (this includes fresh and manufactured baits).
  • 1080/Pindone training during the prescribed months of a control program.
  • Up to date information and support from South East Local Land Services.

Delivery and training dates:

  • Baits will be delivered on Tuesday the 16th, Wednesday the 17th and Thursday the 18th of July, 2019.
  • Training is Friday the 12th of July 2019 at the Boorowa Recreation Club from 9.00am-11.30am.
  • Please let your group coordinator know how many baits you would like and which location you would like to collect them from no later than Thursday the 11th July 2019.

If you are unsure of who your local coordinator is, or are a new landholder wishing to participate, contact the South East Local Land Services and Landcare office in Boorowa on 02 6385 1018, or Landcare coordinator on 0459 681 018.

For more information and to book for the 1080 Pindone accreditation training, please contact South East Local Land Services Senior Biosecurity Officer Scott Schlunke on 0407 489 574 or the Yass office on 02 6118 7700.
