The Mulgoa area is a landscape that continues to support a range of native species that are under pressure from invasive species such as foxes and deer. Farmers in the area are also competing with the increasing number of these animals as they impact on production.
Residents and landholders are invited to attend a pest animal workshop to learn more about the biology of foxes and deer, how to manage their impacts and a focus on the use of cage traps to control foxes. If you are interested please register to attend, places are limited. Preference will be given to program participants who are already using cage traps or monitoring cameras.
