Pest Animals

Within Kingston, feral animals such as foxes, cats and rabbits, significantly impact on native plants and animals and their habitats.  Foxes and cats are exceptional hunters and are the primary cause in the decline and extinction of many smaller native animals. Rabbits directly compete with native wildlife for food and shelter, damage native vegetation and degrade the land. Rabbits have contributed to the decline in numbers of many native plants and animals.
