Other planned events: Wild Dog Baiting program
The Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH Parks and Wildlife) will be undertaking baiting of wild dogs using 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits within Nattai National Park, Joadja Nature Reserve and Bargo State Conservation Area. The program will take place from Monday 11 June 2018 and finish on Monday 30 of July 2018.
This baiting program is in accordance with 1080 Wild Dog Baiting provisions in the Pesticide Control (1080 Liquid Concentrate and Bait Products) Order 2017.
The program will target the following areas:
- Schott’s Ridge fire trail
- Joadja Hill fire trail
- West Ridge fire trail
- South Ridge fire trail
- Wingecarribee River trail
- Bangadilly trail and Spring Ridge trail
This program is part of a joint control program being coordinated by NPWS in conjunction with the SE Local Land Services to assist with the ongoing management of wild dog impacts on production properties.
Precautions will be taken to minimise the risk to pets and other non- target species. Please remember, that it is an offence under the National Parks and Wildlife Act to allow domestic animals into national parks and nature reserves or to interfere with the wild dog control program.
Trackhead signage in each area will advise the start and completion date of the baiting program.
