Applies from Mon 22 Apr 2024, 7.00am to Fri 3 May 2024, 4.30pm. Last reviewed: Sun 14 Apr 2024, 10.26am

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing aerial baiting program from Monday 22 April 2024 to Friday 3 May 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of feral animals (foxes).

The program will take place in Mungo National Park and Mungo State Conservation Area.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of foxes 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 NPWS Lower Darling Area office for more information on 03 5021 8900.

Safety alerts: Blue-Green Algae Advice

There is currently an AMBER alert for potentially toxic blue-green algae on Yanga Lake. At amber alert levels blue-green algae may be multiplying in numbers. The water may have a green tinge and musty or organic odour. The water should be considered as unsuitable for potable use and alternative supplies or prior treatment of raw water for domestic purposes should be considered. The water may also be unsuitable for stock watering. The water remains suitable for recreational use, however algal concentrations can change rapidly. Water users should use caution and avoid water where signs of blue-green algae present. For more information visit the Water NSW website
