Other planned events: Notice of 1080 program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program in Bundjalung National Park and Richmond River Nature Reserve from Monday 8 August 2022 to Friday 23 December 2022.
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
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 NPWS Alstonville area office on 02 6627 0200.
