NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a ground baiting program using dried meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of the introduced European fox. The program will be conducted between 10 August 2021 and 17 December 2021 in Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve (north of the river).
