Summary

This project includes surveying, trapping, baiting and ground shooting of foxes and wild dogs within Cooloola, Inskip Peninsula and the Great Sandy Strait Ramsar site. These species impact on the natural values of these areas through direct predation and competition with native fauna. They are also considered a risk to the general public in adjacent townships and camping areas.

Benefits

  • Improved habitat within Cooloola National Park, near the Ramsar site
  • Improved visitor safety.
