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:
