Other planned events: Yuraygir NP 1080 baiting

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program from Monday 1st July 2024 to Monday 30th December 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program will take place in Yuraygir National Park.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.

Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.

Please contact the local Grafton NPWS area office for more information on 02 6641 1500.
