What are the fox densities in NSW.
Red foxes are highly adaptable and are found almost anywhere in the Northen Hemisphere (and Australia). Their abundance is restricted by food availablility (Mcdonalds, chickens, residential feeding and Native wildlife, such as Potoroos, Bandicoots, Quolls). When food is superabundant, densities can be as high as 30 foxes per km2. In farmland one family can occupy 1 km2, whereas in suburbs this can range from 0.2-5 families per km2. In barren uplands, density can be as a low as one family per 10 km2 (IUCN, 2008). In Central Victoria (Australia), the average fox abundance is 4 foxes per km2 on farmland (DEPI).
