Other planned events: Notice of 1080 ground-based pest program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program in Everlasting Swamp National Park and Everlasting Swamp State Conservation Area from 31st March 2023 till 30 September 2023.
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species.
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.
Please contact the local Grafton NPWS area office for more information on 02 66 411 500.
