12027: Coordinated predator control
This project aims to reduce the impact of pest animals (cats, rabbits and foxes) on populations of the vulnerable Black flanked rock wallaby in the central wheatbelt.
The wallaby was once widespread in Western Australia, throughout the desert areas and southern wheatbelt, but now occurs only in the western part of Western Australia. It lives in areas of granite outcrops, sandstone cliffs, rock piles, scree slopes, caves, and coastal limestone cliffs.
Pest control activities will be implemented on sites throughout the agricultural region that provide habitat for populations of the wallaby. Surrounding landholders that buffer these sites and community action groups will also be supported to implement coordinated pest animal control activities.
A community advisory group of interested landholders will be established to provide advice and assistance in increasing community participation in wallaby management and feral animal control activities.
