Other planned events: 1080 wild dog baiting program underway

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is undertaking a 1080 baiting program targeting wild dogs in Nattai National Park, Thirlmere Lakes National Park and Burragorang State Conservation Area to assist in minimising the impact of wild dogs on surrounding livestock.

1080 baits will be strategically laid in these parks and state conservation area, in areas adjoining livestock enterprises and in accordance with the Southern Highland Wild Dog Management Plan.

The baiting program will begin on, or shortly after, Monday 2 July and will run until Monday 13 August 2018. It's a requirement of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 that domestic animals/pets are not permitted on national parks, nature reserves and state conservation areas. It's essential that local residents restrain domestic pets and ensure they're not permitted to roam, because 1080 is lethal to domestic pets if they consume it. Signs advising of the baiting program will be displayed at entrances to the national parks and state conservation area where baits are located. 1080 baits will be used in accordance with the 1080 Pesticide Control Order, Pesticide Act and Regulation.

If any landholders near the vicinity of these national parks and state conservation area require email notification advising of 1080 Wild Dog Baiting Programs, please email the NPWS Hawkesbury-Nattai area office.

If you have any queries regarding this matter, please call the NPWS Hawkesbury-Nattai area office on (02) 4632 4500 during business hours.
