Other planned events: Notice of 1080 program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program from Monday 11 July 2022 to Monday 05 December 2022, in the following areas:
- Banyabba Nature Reserve
- Banyabba State Conservation Area
- Fortis Creek National Park
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise 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 NPWS area office for more information on 02 6641 1500.
