The continued use of sodium flouroacetate (1080), the most effective control method for wild dogs and foxes, is under some pressure from industry regulators and the community. Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) is taking an active role in the current review of 1080, by making strong representations on behalf of Australian woolgrowers that the toxin should not be banned without a viable replacement being available.
AWI has decided to fund a three-year, $3.2 million project aimed at developing the next generation of wild dog and fox control technologies, before the use of 1080 is potentially restricted.
