Coast Care rabbit control

Coast Care contractors are undertaking rabbit control for 2013.

The control work is necessary to protect past and present dune restoration plantings undertaken by Coast Care volunteers.

Warning signs will be erected before any poison is laid and will be replaced with danger signs when the poison is present.

Please follow all instructions on signs.

For their own safety, dogs MUST be kept on leashes when walking through the dunes and should NOT be allowed to wander in to the treatment area.
