Leichhardt Council is working with other Sydney Councils to manage fox impacts.

Introduced foxes are a declared pest in NSW, and are causing increasing problems throughout Sydney.


Fifteen southern Sydney Councils have come together to develop a regional and coordinated approach to fox management to address these problems.

Over the next year the project will study the behaviour of urban foxes, engage local communities and map the distribution of foxes in southern Sydney enabling fox control to be undertaken at strategic locations.

To reduce the impacts of foxes, we encourage you to record and map sightings of foxes and fox impacts in your local area in FoxScan.

Visit the Fox Scan website and help us map your sightings.
