Keeping our open sanctuaries pest free

You will be entering the Shakespear Open Sanctuary (haven for native birds and plants):

You will need to tell everyone who will be visiting with you, so they understand and comply with the following:

  • They must check all vehicles and equipment before entering Shakespear Regional Park to ensure it is free of pests, vermin and hazardous material.
  • That dogs and all other animals and pets are prohibited at all times.
  • They need to alert the park ranger if they see any animal pests.
  • To keep away from and do not touch any traps or bait stations.
  • To remove all rubbish, food, baits etc. as these attract animal pests.
  • That they ensure that any predator fence gates used are closed behind them.
  • That no one is to climb the predator fence as this could damage it.
