    The Shire of Westonia has many nature reserves that provide habitat for Malleefowl.

    Malleefowl were once found throughout the southern half of Australia but are now regarded as threatened nationally and 'rare or likely to become extinct' in WA.

    This project aims to control two vermin that impact on the survival of Malleefowl: foxes and rabbits.

    Over 3000 fox baits and 50 kilograms of grain baits (to control rabbits) will be laid on agricultural land around reserves.

    A fox shoot will also be coordinated as part of the red card for red fox program.

    Investment: $ 13 086
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Westonia
    Project duration: February 2013 - December 2013
    Location: Westonia Shire
