Other planned events: 1080 pest management program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a baiting program using fresh meat, manufactured baits and CPEs containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes and wild dogs. The program will be ongoing and continuous from Monday 4 January to Friday 4 June 2021.
The baited parks, reserves and state conservation areas include:
- Ben Boyd National Park
- Bournda National Park
- Bournda Nature Reserve
There will be signs at all baiting locations.
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 in the vicinity must be restrained or muzzled and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
