Safety alerts: Notice of 1080 aerial baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground and aerial baiting program from 8th October 2022 to 7th April 2023 in the following reserves:

  • Barrington Tops National Park / State Conservation Area
  • Berrico Nature Reserve
  • Black Bulga State Conservation Area
  • Camerons Gorge Nature Reserve / State Conservation Area

  • Crawney Pass National Park
  • Curracabundi group of reserves
  • Monkerai Nature Reserve
  • Towarri National Park
  • The Glen Nature Reserve
  • Wallabadah Nature Reserve
  • Woolooma National Park

Aerial baiting is scheduled for Saturday 8th October to Friday 14th October 2022.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

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.

For more information, contact the NPWS Scone area office on 02 6540 2300.
