Alert Description: NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial baiting program from 4 May 2024 to 12 May 2024 in the following reserves:

  • Barrington Tops National Park/State Conservation Area
  • Towarri National Park / Wingen Maid Nature Reserve / Cedar Brush Nature Reserve

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.

Signs will be placed at authorised entrances to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks and most other NPWS managed land. 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 NPWS Gloucester Office on 02 6538 5300 or Scone Office on 02 6540 2300 for more information.
