Other planned events: Notice of 1080 pest management program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program using fresh meat baits containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes. The program will be ongoing and continuous from Monday 29th May to Friday 29th September 2023. The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.
Baiting programs will be undertaken in:
- South East Forests National Park
- Coolumbooka Nature Reserve
- Bondi Gulf Nature Reserve
Signs will be placed at the entry to the baiting location.
Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks managed lands. Pets and working dogs may be affected (1080 is lethal to cats and dogs). Pets and working dogs must be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
For further information, please call the NPWS Bombala office on 02 6458 5900.
