Other planned events: 1080 ground and aerial baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial and ground baiting program in this park from Sunday 23 May to Sunday 31 July 2022.

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

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 the entry to the baiting location. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. 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 the local Armidale NPWS area office for more information on 67389100.
