Other planned events: Notice of 1080 ground baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a strategic ground baiting program for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The operations will involve the use of meat products containing Poison 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate). The ground baiting program will be ongoing from Monday 16 August for four weeks, then continuing to Tuesday 30 November 2021 in the following parks, reserves and state conservation areas:
- Abercrombie National Park and State Conservation Area
- Gardens of Stone National Park
- Wollemi National Park
- Blue Mountains National Park
- Turon National Park
- Marrangaroo National Park
- Mares Forest National Park
- Kanangra-Boyd National Park
- Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve
- Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve
These programs have been designed to meet NPWS priority conservation and state focused biosecurity issues. All baiting locations will be signposted.
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.
For further information, call the NPWS Kanangra area on 02 6336 6200.
