Record fox activity in the Menangle region

The Menangle Fox Control Group has been formed to coordinate a landscape approach to managing foxes, where landholders (rural and residential) use as many methods as appropriate to control foxes twice a year (autumn and spring). Foxes will never be eradicated as new foxes will always move in from any uncontrolled surrounding (or within) area, however, this ongoing approach will have the biggest and most long-lasting impact on the fox population.
By recording fox sightings, impacts and control actions, you can help to build a landscape scale picture of the fox problem throughout the Menangle area, to help guide local strategies to reduce fox problems. The Menangle Fox Campaign is supported by Barragal Landcare Inc., Greater Sydney Local Land Services, Campbelltown, Camden and Wollondilly Councils, the Invasive Animals CRC, and the Australian Governments National Landcare Program.
