The "Grampians to Grassland" fox control project was supported by Caring for Our Country funding in 2010.
This project implemented a best practice pulse fox-baiting programs to protect threatened species of the volcanic plains grassy communities in a target area of grassy woodland and wetland habitat adjoining the Grampians National Park.
The project was timed to coincide with the Grampians Ark fox baiting project. Following the model established by Grampians Ark and with the support from the group this project mapped significant habitat areas on public and private land and fox hides. Monitoring and research was undertaken using digital cameras.
Two community engagement and biodiversity education field days were held for public and private landholders to raise the profile of the area’s ecology and demonstrate effective pulse baiting techniques. Extensive mapping of the area and establishing permanent bait stations have made it easier to continue the baiting in the future. Landholders were encouraged to develop their own monitoring regimes.
