Aerial fox baiting

on 02 Mar 2016 

Last weekend we were part of a co-ordinated effort to aerial bait for foxes in the Olary Ranges. 

This is a long term partnership with the Bounceback Program in South Australia.

The hills at Boolcoomatta are the eastern extent of the Olary ranges and are operationally difficult to bait for foxes from the ground. 

Next week, we ground bait the boundaries and internal tracks, following a well-established feral control program to minimise the effects of feral predation on our native fauna.

For eight years now we've not had a recording of foxes at Boolcoomatta, evidence that this co-ordinated and systematic program is effective.
