Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a baiting program using dried meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of of the introduced European fox (Vulpes vulpes). The program will be conducted between Tuesday 16 February and Wednesday 23 June 2021 in Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve (north of the river).
All baiting locations will be identifiable 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 location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
