Other planned events: Fox control program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service will be doing 1080 ground baiting for foxes in Brunswick Nature Reserve (north).
The baiting program will run from 29 October 2019 to 10 December 2019. It will reduce the impact of the European red fox on threatened species including beach stone curlew and pied oystercatcher. The fox control program is part of the NSW Saving our Species Program.
There will be 1080 warning signs at the authorised access points to the baiting location. Don't touch baits or ejector devices.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats. Please restrain pets and working dogs and ensure they do not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
