Other planned events: Fox baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting a 1080 fox baiting program in Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve from Tuesday 4 July to Friday 15 December 2017. The operations will take place north of the Brunswick River. This program is part of the priority initiative of the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan for the conservation of threatened, beach-nesting shorebirds. Baits will be laid and pest ejectors may also be set to control foxes. If necessary, fox control may continue until Friday 23 February 2018 to allow the shorebird chicks time to fledge this breeding season.
1080 warning signs are at main entrance points to the nature reserve where fox baits are laid. This includes:
- North Head Road
- Harry's Hill
- North Beach (also known as Christmas Beach)
- Oyster Lease Road and;
- Brunswick River picnic area
Dogs are not permitted in national parks or nature reserves by law at any time. All visitors and pet owners should be aware of the risk of lethal 1080 poisoning to dogs and keep their domestic animals to designated areas and avoid bait stations and ejectors at all times. For more information contact the NPWS Tweed area office on (02) 6670 8600.
