Other planned events: Shorebird protection program - shorebird monitoring and fox and wild dog pest control program
As part of the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan, the North Coast branch of NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service will begin a 1080 fox-baiting and ejector program on Monday 3 July 2017. This will affect all neighbours and visitors to Richmond River Nature Reserve, Broadwater National Park and Bundjalung National Park.
Baits and ejectors will be used until Friday 15 December 2017. Where wild dogs are detected during these programs, they will also be controlled. 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, to protect breeding threatened shorebirds.
Dogs are not permitted in national parks or nature reserves. Please be aware of these control programs, and keep domestic pets to designated pet exercise areas and avoid bait stations and/or ejectors at all times.
