Feral animal control is often required as part of a holistic approach to environmental management. Feral animals such as rabbits, foxes and cats can cause widespread damage to ecosystems, predating on local native fauna and destroying revegetation works through digging and plant predation. If left unchecked, Kangaroo populations can also cause damage to revegetation works, particularly through predation on seedlings during early stages of development. Natural Area employ a team of qualified vertebrate pest managers with Certificate III in Vertebrate Pest Management and firearm licences.
Our team of professionals are licenced by the Department of Health to undertake feral animal control using 1080. We provide extensive training to ensure the correct policies and procedures are followed when transporting, storing and using 1080. Our team are also qualified with Certificate III in Vertebrate Pest Management and are licenced to humanely euthanise vertebrate pests using firearms if required.
We are able to plan, manage and provide advice to Clients on what type of baiting program is suitable for their needs. This includes assessing the site and population characteristics, applying for licences and approvals, determining best methodology, and baiting locations.
Where the use of baiting is not permitted, we can trap animals to remove them from site. We use motion sensor, trail cameras to determine best location for traps. All trapping is undertaken humanely with traps set in the afternoon and checked in the morning.
