    The Shires of Kellerberrin, Bruce Rock and Quairading are home to many special and unique animals including the Malleefowl and the Black Flanked Rock Wallaby. 

    Habitat and survival of these and other native animals are threatened by rabbits and foxes.

    This project will encourage landholders to bait these pests with the aim of laying 8500 fox baits and 500 kg of rabbit baits.

    The baiting program will run in conjunction with the Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes shooting program coordinated by Wheatbelt NRM.

    Investment: $ 25 000
    Delivery organisation: Shire of Kellerberrin
    Project duration: January 2013 - June 2014
    Location: Shires of Kellerberrin, Bruce Rock and Quairading
