Other planned events: Notice of 1080 Aerial Baiting Program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an aerial baiting program using 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes. These programs will be undertaken from the Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th April 2023.
These programs are part of an integrated pest animal control strategy, aimed at minimising the impacts of wild dog and foxes on neighbouring stock and for conservation benefits.
Baiting programs will be conducted in Nocoleche Nature Reserve and Toorale State Conservation Area and National Park.
All baiting locations will be identifiable by signs.
Please be reminded that domestic pets are not permitted on NPWS estate. 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 locations. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
For further information please call the Bourke National Parks Officer on 0268 300 200.
