Other planned events: 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program underway

NSW National Parks are conducting a 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program in the Kangaroo Valley, Budgong and Illaroo areas for the protection of the Endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby. The baiting is conducted on various private properties, council reserves, NPWS estate, Water NSW estate and vacant Crown land. All properties with 1080 baiting under this program are permanently baited throughout the year. These properties will have poison on them from today through to 31 December 2017. The baiting will be conducted using both 1080 buried baits and 1080 (above ground) ejector devices at the bait station locations. Do not touch any bait or ejector devices. All properties being baited are sign posted with the baiting dates and an indication of which baiting methods are being used on each property. Dog owners are reminded to ensure their dogs do not wander as dogs are highly susceptible to 1080 poisoning. A map indicating the approximate location of each bait station is being hosted on the Friends of the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby website. For further information please contact Melinda Norton at the OEH Highlands area office, Fitzroy Falls on (02) 4887 8244.
