Targeting feral foxes at Crumpet Creek Reserve - Mundy Regional Park

Keeping our parks free of invasive and destructive species is essential if we want to protect the diverse range of native species in our local, natural landscape. One such species is the red fox, an introduced species that impacts our environment, and our economy. These feral animals contribute to the loss of natural habitat and the decline of native animals including marsupials, nesting birds and reptiles across Australia. Foxes compete for habitat, spread weeds and diseases, and kill and damage livestock including domestic poultry, and pets.
