An exciting opportunity to undertake a Coordinated Fox Baiting program across 12 local government areas in the Upper Great Southern was announced at the end of June.
Led by Kent NRM Coordinator, Paul Leoni, this project is open to landholders in Kent, Lake Grace, Jerramungup, Gnowangerup, Plantagenet, Cranbrook, Broomehill-Tambellup, Katanning, Dumbleyung, Wagin, Woodanilling and Kojonup.
The grant will include 1080 accreditation courses, and subsidised 1080 baits.
If you want to be a part of it, you will have to:
- Fill in the EOI form (click here) and return via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- You will have to ensure you have a valid 1080 bait permit (can be current or you will have to attend a course when they’re run)
- Lay the baits during the prescribed periods
- Report back to the project officer when done
- And if there are any noticeable effects (dead foxes, reduced livestock kills), let us know also.
The EOIs close on 4th August 2019, so please do get in early. It’s rare these days to see subsidised baiting programs, so get in quick and support this great opportunity.
