Regional Fox Baiting program - Public Notice

Regional Fox Baiting program

Please be advised that a fox baiting program will soon commence in the local area in conjunction with Greater Sydney Local Land Services. The aim of the program is to protect native wildlife including threatened species from fox predation. 

Foxoff poison baits (containing 1080) will be buried in the following Reserves between Monday 10 August to Friday 28 August 2020:

  • Lake Parramatta Reserve, managed by City of Parramatta Council
  • Excelsior Reserve, Eric Mobbs Reserve, Ted Horwood Reserve, 13 Cadwells Road Kenthurst, Holland Road Reserve Glenhaven managed by The Hills Shire Council

Foxoff is designed specifically for fox control. Trained staff will undertake the baiting. Baits will be buried 10cm under the ground to reduce the risk of non-target poisoning.
