Brindabella and Wee Jasper valleys - co-operative wild dog/fox plan

This is an innovative approach to wild dog and fox management that covers an area of approximately 150,000 hectares at the northern end of the Australian Alps.

The plan works across all land tenures and attempts to stop wild dogs from entering grazing lands by creating a buffer zone within adjoining bushland areas.

Under the initial plan (2002-05) attacks on stock decreased by an average of 75 per cent per year.

The NPWS, Yass Rural Lands Protection Board and Forests NSW have committed resources to continue the plan until 2010.

The Brindabella Wee Jasper program has been adopted across NSW as a model plan for wild dog and fox control.
