Other planned events: Notice of 1080 Fox baiting to protect bogong moths
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting its annual ground baiting program from Thursda 23rd of November to Monday the 4th of December 2023. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program will take place in Kosciuszko National Park National Park at a number of remote locations.
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.
