Other planned events: 1080 fox baiting program underway

1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) will be laid in Wollemi National Park as buried baits or ejector capsule from Saturday 1 July to Sunday 31 December 2017 in an ongoing manner.

The 1080 poison will be laid in the vicinity of Wolgan River, Capertee River, Old Coach Road, Canobla Gap trails and the access road to Coorongooba campground.

This baiting program aims to reduce the threat posed by foxes to brush-tailed rock wallabies and other native animals.

Do not touch baits or ejector devices. 1080 poison is lethal to dogs and cats. Domestic pets may be affected. Pet owners need to ensure that their pets do not enter reserves.

For further information please contact the NPWS Blackheath office on (02) 4787 8877 during business hours.
