15028: A collaborative approach to successful pest management in the Northern Agricultural Region
This project will aim to develop a collaborative approach in the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR) of Western Australia in order to:
- efficiently and sustainably conduct pest management for a range of species (foxes and cats, wild dogs, pigs and rabbits)
- and preserve the local native wildlife currently predated upon
It will bring pest management back onto the agenda as a main environmental priority and will coordinate a baiting and trapping campaign for optimum coverage and success.
This project will introduce a collaborative approach from 8 different shires and will be developed in 3 phases: Education, Process and Elimination. The project will in its first year focus on foxes and wild dogs and will later extend to cats, rabbits and wild pigs.
