A Fox Education and Resource Kit has been added to the Education Section of the Parks and Wildlife Service web site. The kit has been developed for Tasmanian schools to provide information on foxes, the threat they pose to Tasmania and what students and others can do to help.

The establishment of foxes in Tasmania remains the greastest threat to Tasmania's unique wildlife. The Fox Free Tasmania Taskforce continues to implement a long-term eradication program to eradicate any foxes that may be in Tasmania now, and to ensure foxes are never introduced here again.
