Other planned events: 1080 fox ground baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting an ongoing 1080 ground baiting operation from Wednesday 14 October 2020 to Wednesday 14 April 2021 to reduce the impacts on threatened species.

The operation will target foxes in the Carrington Falls, Knights Hill and Barren Grounds areas. Baits have been placed on NPWS estate, private properties and Crown road reserves with permissions. 

There will be 1080 baiting signs at the entrance to baiting areas. Don’t touch baits or ejector devices. Some baits may be buried.

1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) is lethal to pets (including domestic dogs and cats) and working dogs. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance. Domestic pets, including dogs and cats are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Restrain working and assistance dogs to ensure they don’t enter the baiting areas. If you need your dogs to work in the baiting area outside of national park estate, we suggest muzzling them.

Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information, contact Melinda Norton at the NPWS office at Fitzroy Falls on 02 4887 8244 or send an email.
