Steps are being taken to reduce the number of feral birds and animals in the Northern Illawarra.
While deer continue to be a problem, there have been reports of local fox sightings- and the Council wants to know about it.
They’re calling on anyone who sees a fox to report it, saying these sightings form the basis of future pest management works planning.

Meanwhile a smartphone app called Feralscan has been established to map feral pests in our environment and we are all being encouraged to report sightings. You can find out more HERE
A program has also been launched by Council to reduce the local impact of Indian Myna Birds.
This program, introduced by the Corrimal Men’s Shed aims to reduce the breeding, feeding and roosting opportunities and survey and record local bird numbers to help with future programs.
Council is running a series of workshops on the management of these nuisance-birds. The next one is at WCC Geo Tech Lab. 5 Watts Lane Bellambi on Saturday March 18. 10am.
