Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 Program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program from Monday 9 May to Wednesday 9 November 2022 in the following parks:
- Dharug National Park
- Manobalai Nature Reserve
- Parr State Conservation Area
- Wollemi State Conservation Area
- Yengo National Park
An aerial baiting program will also be conducted in these parks from Monday 5 September to Friday 16 September 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.
Please contact the local Bulga NPWS office for more information on 02 6574 5555.
