Boorowa landholders are being encouraged to take part in the autumn community fox baiting program taking place in March.
Feral Fighters is an initiative to strategically target pest animals at a regional and state scale through coordinated group baiting control programs. By working with neighbours and local networks to support Feral Fighters, better results will be achieved for the landholder, neighbours, community, local industries and the environment.
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.
Effective fox control programs can increase lambing percentages when baiting is conducted in a group environment covering multiple properties.
Landholders who register with South East Local Land Services to become a Feral Fighter receive:
Training will take place on Friday the 6th of March at the Boorowa Recreation Club from 9am to 11.30am.
Baits will be delivered on Tuesday the 10th, Wednesday the 11th and Thursday the 12th of March.
Landholders need to let the group coordinator know how many baits they would like and which location they will be collecting them from no later than Thursday the 5th of March.
To find out who your local coordinator is, contact your Local Land Services (LLS) office in Boorowa on 02 6385 1018 or Landcare coordinator on 0459 681 018.
