Safety alerts: 1080 disposal NPWS Fitzroy Falls Depot
NSW National Parks conduct numerous 1080 fox and wild dog baiting programs across various local national parks within the Illawarra Highlands area. Any untaken baits from these programs are collected and buried at a nominated burial pit within the Fitzroy Falls depot in Morton National Park. All bait material buried in the disposal pit are buried under at least 50cm of soil. This burial pit will continue to have 1080 bait material in it from today through to Saturday 30 June 2018.
Dog owners are reminded to ensure their dogs do not enter the Fitzroy Falls depot. 1080 is lethal to domestic dogs and cats.
