Other planned events: 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program underway
A 1080 fox and wild dog baiting program is underway in the Kangaroo Valley, Budgong and Illaroo areas from Friday 14 December 2018 through to Friday 14 June 2018.
Baits have been placed on private properties, council reserves, the NSW National Parks estate, the Water NSW estate and vacant Crown land. Areas with 1080 baits are sign-posted with dates and information about the baiting methods.
- Do not touch bait or ejector devices.
- Dog owners should not allow their dogs to wander in these areas because 1080 is poisonous to domestic animals, like dogs.
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is conducting the 1080 program in these areas to protect the endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby. Visit the Friends of the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby website to find out more about them.
Please refer to the cross-hatched areas on the attached map which shows land within 1km of any baiting stations.
