About the plan
This threat abatement plan (TAP) establishes a national framework to guide and coordinate Australia’s response to the impacts of European red foxes on biodiversity. It identifies the research, management and other actions needed to ensure the long-term survival of native species and ecological communities affected by predation by European red foxes. It replaces the TAP for predation by European red foxes published in 1999 (EA 1999a).
This plan should be read in conjunction with the publication Background document for the threat abatement plan for predation by the European red fox (DEWHA 2008). The background document provides information on fox characteristics, biology and distribution; impacts on environmental, economic, social and cultural values; and current management practices and measures.
