Council seeks assistance in identifying local fox locations

Shoalhaven City Council is seeking assistance in mapping the presence of foxes in coastal areas, Kangaroo Valley and Illaroo during September.

The information will assist Council, National Parks and its partners in their fox control program aimed at protecting the breeding activities of endangered native species.

Council will be using a new internet technology called ‘Crowd Sourcing’ for this mapping.

Volunteers will need to log onto an interactive map on Council’s website and place a mark at the exact site where the fox was seen.

Other details such as date seen, behaviour or condition can be added. The tool can also be used to record the location of foxes killed on the road or by trapping, shooting or baiting.

Information will be sought on -

• Date that the fox was last seen.
• Time of day of sighting.
• Number of foxes spotted.
• Any general comments.

Council, National Parks and their contractors will use the information to concentrate their efforts on those areas where foxes have been sighted.

People can log onto the mapping program at http://shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au/Environment/Pestmanagement/Foxcontrol.aspx (new window).
