Foxes are not a declared pest, and hence landowners do not have any legal responsibility for controlling foxes on their land.
Council is involved in a range of pest management programs and activities.
These programs and activities help to better manage Council reserves as well as to protect the biological assets and biodiversity of the Shoalhaven environment and landscape.
You can report feral pest activity through the Feral Scan website.
FeralScan is hosted by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) and supports regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) groups, local Councils, and landholders.
Reports close to endangered species sites are especially valuable and will be followed up during key time periods.
You can also report feral pest activity to Council:
