About FoxScan



FoxScan is a new fox mapping website to assist farmers, community groups, and individuals with the management of foxes and their impacts anywhere throughout Australia. Foxes occur in 75% of Australia and cause an estimated $227 million damage each year to agriculture and our environment. Help prevent the damage caused by foxes by becoming part of the FoxScan project. FoxScan is a free mapping service that you can use to help with control in your local area.

How can you use FoxScan?

  • Record and view all your records of foxes, their damage and control activities all in the one place!
  • Upload your photos of foxes and their activity and view them in the photo gallery
  • Use the data from your local area to create and print a map
  • Talk with your neighbours and compare your results
  • Identify the priority areas for control on your property and in your local area
  • Link with local groups and coordinate your resources
  • Find out who may be able to help you with fox management
  • Monitor the effects of control programs and prove their effectiveness

Whether you are a landholder, landcare or community group, local council or school, FoxScan can help you map foxes, access resources, connect with other people, and find out about available support. Join FoxScan to map foxes in your local area and help build information about foxes across your region.

Group control programs are best

 
Foxes are best controlled in 'group fox control programs' - where landholders or community groups get together and undertake control at the same time. FoxScan information can help people work cooperatively to target priority areas.
 

FeralScan Program

FoxScan is part of a national FeralScan 'citizen science' program designed to support landholders, community groups, and anyone with a feral or pest animal problem anywhere in Australia. The project is an initiative of the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (IA CRC) in partnership with NSW Department of Primary Industries, Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences, Woolworths, Toshiba, Landcare Australia, Western Catchment Management Authority (NSW), Ninti One Limited, the ABC, and community groups Australia wide.
