Other planned events: Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve (north) fox baiting program

National Parks and Wildlife Service are conducting 1080 fox baiting program in Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve (north)  from Tuesday 4 July to Friday 15 July 2017. Baits and pest ejectors will be laid to control foxes and wild dogs. Fox control and any detection of wild dogs may continue at some sites until Friday 23 February 2018 to allow for the completion of shorebird breeding. 

Signs will be located at entrances to reserves where baits for foxes and wild dogs have been laid. These programs are priority initiatives of the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan for the protection of breeding threatened shorebirds. Dogs are not permitted in national parks or nature reserves. All visitors and owners should be aware and keep their domestic animals to designated areas and avoid bait stations/ejectors at all times. For more information contact the NPWS Tweed area office on (02) 6670 8600.
