Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting program in Crowdy Bay National Park

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program from 20th May 2024 to 7th June 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of feral animals.

The program will take place in Crowdy Bay National Park.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially koalas and other threatened species.

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 Port Macquarie NPWS office for more information on 6588 5555.
