Final report on a study conducted by the Vertebrate Pest Research Unit (VPRU), NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to determine if there is a relationship between lamb survival and the frequency, timing and spatial coverage of fox-control programs.
The study took advantage of existing agricultural fox-management programs across 4.5 million hectares in regional New South Wales (NSW) to look at their impact on lamb survival. Data was collected from a range of landholders participating in fox-control activities, ranging from no control or isolated individual programs, to control on a larger scale with coordinated groups.
