Fox control program launched
A fox control program is about to begin in the Tyagarah Nature Reserve with the help of the North Coast Livestock Pest and Health Authority.
National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) ranger Norm Graham said 1080 baits would be laid in buried bait stations within the reserve south of Brunswick Heads towards Grays Lane from August 2 until December 19.
Mr Graham said the program aimed to protect native species such as the long nosed potoroo from predation by foxes.
He reminded people that pets were not allowed in any national park or nature reserve at any time.
Signs will be erected notifying visitors, neighbours and users that there is a 1080 fox-baiting program in the reserve.
