Impact of fox baiting on tiger quoll populations

The impact of fox baiting on quoll populations was tested on the northeastern coast of NSW. 1080 is a widely used control method for foxes and the Treat Abatement Plan that was developed for foxes in NSW stipulated that the risks to quoll populations of such a baiting regime was unknown. The overall impact of 1080 baits on quoll populations was found to be negligible and was thought to be mainly due to 1080, or the bait matrix itself being unpalatable to the quolls.
