Other planned events: Bongil Bongil NP Fox Baiting Program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program in Bongil Bongil National Park from 10 August 2023 to 28 February 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes. The program is designed to minimise fox impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species. Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting area. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW NPWS-managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs) and should be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance. Please contact the local Coffs Coast NPWS area office for more information on 02 6652 0900.
