Other planned events: 1080 wild dog control program

NSW National Parks is planning to run a 1080 wild dog control program.

Baiting will be undertaken in Cudgen Nature Reserve from Tuesday 12 May 2020 Tuesday 9 June 2020.

Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats. Please be aware of the baiting programs and avoid bait stations in all areas, at all times. There will be signs up in areas where baits have been laid, indicating the date the baits were placed.

These programs are run to protect threatened species identified in the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan and Saving our Species programs.

We encourage landholders to participate in control programs on private property. Contact North Coast Local Land Services to discuss and arrange programs. Delays may occur due to unsuitable weather conditions. NPWS may also run additional programs following these initial programs, depending on wild dog activity.

For more information call the NPWS Murwillumbah office in on 02 6670 8600.
