What is this issue
Predation of native fauna (by foxes, cats etc).
Impacts of the issue
Predation of native animals by pest species result in population declines, particularly of small-weight range species. In urban areas, feral and domesticated cats and foxes have a significant impact on birds and small mammals.
- Insufficient control of pest animals
- Difficulty of control near built-up areas
- Lack of landholder knowledge/ management capacity
- Increase in lifestyle properties, high landholder turnover
