Predatory Pest Animal Control Program- Mornington Peninsula National Park

In coming weeks, Parks Victoria will be conducting a pest predator control program in sections of Mornington Peninsula National Park. The objective of the program is to reduce red fox numbers to relieve predation of native wildlife, particularly vulnerable and threatened species, such as Hooded Plover and White-footed Dunnart, in accordance with the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act (1988) and associated Action Statements.
The program will involve the use of Para Amino Propiopenone (PAPP) baiting for foxes in strategic locations throughout the national park. Baiting will occur from 7/12/20 – 25/01/21. All pest animal control works will be undertaken by a qualified and licensed contractor (Timberscope Pty Ltd) in accordance with relevant regulatory procedures, prescriptions and compliance under relevant legislation. 
 As per National Parks Regulations 2013, dogs and cats are prohibited from Mornington Peninsula National Park at all times. Additionally, please ensure that pets do not stray into the national park from adjacent residential areas. The risk to native fauna is very low.

Stay safe this summer around beaches

Beaches may have hazards such as steep cliffs, slippery rocks, strong ocean currents, large waves, rips, and sudden changes in weather conditions. Stay safe on your day at the beach by only swimming where there are lifeguards and by staying in between the red and yellow flags. Always heed warning signs and advice even if you are not planning to go in the water and be aware of changing weather conditions. Always wear a lifejacket whenever boating, rock fishing, or using a watercraft.
