Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program from 18 July 2023 to 28 September 2023 The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program will take place in Timmallallie National Park and Pilliga Nature Reserve.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise 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 Castlereagh NPWS area office for more information on 02 6843 4000.
