The City of Canning undertakes feral pest management to help control environmentally-damaging animals in natural areas.
The City's most problematic pest animals include foxes, feral and stray cats, rabbits and feral bees.
Foxes and feral cats prey on local wildlife such as local birds, small mammals, small lizards, and frogs while rabbits degrade bushland areas by preventing the regeneration and establishment of native vegetation through grazing.
Feral bees cause the displacement of the City’s native birds and bees by occupying nesting hollows with their hives.
You can help by notifying the City if you observe a feral pest or beehive in your area.
