Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting an aerial baiting program from Monday 17 May to Friday 28 May 2021.
The operation will involve the use of meat baits, and meat bait products containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes in the following parks, reserves and state conservation areas:
- Bargo State Conservation Area
- Blue Mountains National Park
- Guula Ngurra National Park
- Nattai National Park
- Wollemi National Park.
This program is designed to minimise the impact of foxes on wildlife, especially after the recent extensive bushfires, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs and foxes on neighbouring stock.
Baits may remain active in the environment for up to a month after delivery.
All baiting locations will be identified by signs. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks and reserves. 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.
Please contact the Hawkesbury-Nattai Area Glenbrook Office on 02 4720 6200 for more information.
