NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program in Bundjalung National Park from Tuesday 1 November 2022 to Monday 1 May 2023.

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.
