Southern Ark

Southern Ark is a conservation initiative aimed at facilitating the recovery of native mammals, birds and reptiles across approximately one million hectares of public land in far East Gippsland through the establishment of an integrated, large-scale and on-going fox control program.

The primary objective of Southern Ark is to help recover and restore the native wildlife of East Gippsland by creating extensive tracts of habitat in which populations of introduced Red Foxes (Vulpes vulpes) are substantially reduced.
