Other planned events: 1080 wild dog and fox pest management program underway
NSW National Parks is monitoring wild dogs and foxes and running a 1080 pest management program:
- Baiting is happening in Yuraygir National Park from Wednesday 1 July 2020 until Wednesday 30 June 2021.
- Baiting is happening in Everlasting Swamp State Conservation Area and National Park from Wednesday 1 July 2020 until Wednesday 30 June 2021.
There will be signs at baiting locations. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks. Pets and working dogs may be affected, and 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.
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.
