Other planned events: Notice of 1080 ongoing program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program from Saturday 2 September 2023 to Monday 18 December 2023. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program will take place in Bundjalung National Park and Richmond River Nature Reserve.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened shorebird species.
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 Alstonville NPWS area office for more information on 02 6627 0200.
Affects 1 park and 4 locations nearby.
