Joining the Dots
Collaborative feral management at landscape scale
Feral animals are recognised as major predators of native animals, including critically endangered Western Ringtail Possums, Australasian Bittern and migratory shorebirds. All occur in the south coast WA, 594,437ha project area. Feral animal management is mostly undertaken on one land tenure leaving pests in adjacent areas. This project builds on the success of current and recent projects and works across all land tenures. This 4 partner collaboration, working with other community-based organisations, government departments and land managers, aligns feral control and DBCA monitoring methodologies. This will ensure maximum project effect, with data and results that can be shared widely.
