Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program in Bundjalung National Park from Monday 1st May 2023  to Wednesday 1st November 2023.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes, and is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially 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.

For more information, contact the NPWS Clarence Area Office on 02 6641 1500.
