Other planned events: Wild dog and fox baiting program in southern Crowdy Bay National Park

NSW National Parks will be undertaking 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) ground baiting for wild dogs and foxes in the southern section of Crowdy Bay National Park. This program starts on Thursday 23 May and will finish by Wednesday 31 July 2019. It will run next to Harrington, Crowdy Head and Crowdy Bay Beach.

This baiting program is being carried out to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on neighbouring stock. It is also being carried out to reduce the impact of foxes on native wildlife.

Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic pets. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.

All baiting areas will have 1080 baiting signs at the access points.
