29 April 2024 Other planned events Notice of 1080 baiting program in Crowdy Bay National Park Details

Applies from Mon 29 Apr 2024, 11.04am to Fri 31 May 2024, 11.16am. Last reviewed: Thu 18 Apr 2024, 11.25am

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program from 29th April 2024 to 31st May 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of feral animals.

The program will take place in Crowdy Bay National Park.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially koalas and other threatened 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 Port Macquarie NPWS office for more information on 6588 5555.
