Foxes

Foxes pose a major threat to native wildlife, including endangered species such as the Southern Brown Bandicoot. Many of our native species are not used to predators like foxes and cats, so stand little chance of survival when these animals come into their habitats. Ku-ring-gai Council collaborate with other Councils and the NSW State Government (including National Parks) to conduct fox control across many of our reserves.

Report a fox sighting

You can report a sighting online at feralscan.org.au or  by using the free FeralScan App available from AppStore and Google Playstore to report your observations. By reporting foxes you are helping to deal with the pest problem and protect our native fauna!

 

Fox baiting

We conduct fox baiting twice a year within our bushland reserves to protect native species from fox predation.

You may have noticed an increase in native animals since the program started. Studies also show that native animal populations are able to recover and return to their natural habitats in areas where fox control programs have been in place for a number of years.
