Feral Animals

Georges River is a home for some feral animals, as well as a vector for feral animals travelling between the Georges River National Park and other local government areas.

Feral animals cause serious damage to our environment and economy annually, harming many local native species through predation and competition in habitat and food sources. Nationally, feral animals cost us between $800 million and $1 billion a year according to the NSW Natural Resources Commission.


What is Council Doing?

Council has helped the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC) set up a Feral Animal Control Services Panel, which employs qualified pest management contractors to control a range of feral animals, including rats, foxes, rabbits, Indian Mynas and pigeons.

Council continues to implement recurring fox management programs, as well as conduct regular control programs for feral animals in and around Council facilities. Rabbit sightings can be reported on the Rabbit Scan website.
