GB2AS field day on pest management (feral cats and foxes)

11 April @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


We invite you to a Greens Bush to Arthurs Seat Biolink project (GB2AS) field day on pest
management (feral cats and foxes) at the Coolart Wetlands and Homestead.

This significant field day has brought together several leading national and local speakers: Kim Cott from Parks Victoria will discuss biodiversity and pest management within the GB2AS Biolink area; Gillian Basnett, the National Cat and Fox Program Manager of the Centre for Invasive Species, will talk about the impacts from feral cats and foxes and some national success stories; and Rod Brindley from Timber Scope will provide a talk and demonstration about the practical aspects of controlling feral cats and foxes.

The control of feral cats and foxes in the GB2AS Biolink area is critical for the protection of a wide range of native fauna, including threatened species like White-footed Dunnart, Swamp Skink & Lewins Rail.

The GB2AS Biolink project is an exciting initiative that aims to improve catchment health and
provide landscape connectivity between significant areas of remnant vegetation. This decadal
program is undertaking extensive nature corridor revegetation, pest control, weeding, and protection of indigenous vegetation across private farmlands to improve biodiversity, the survival chances of rare and endangered wildlife and agricultural productivity.

Please RSVP by Tuesday the 9th of April at thomas@regeneratingfarms.com.au
or call Thomas Kennett on 0499 596 493 with any questions.

Please do not attend if you are unwell.
