Closed parks: Ongoing 1080 pest management program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service staff will be undertaking an ongoing 1080 poison pest control operation from Tuesday 25 May to Thursday 25 November 2021. This will involve continuous aerial and ground baiting programs using meat baits, meat bait products, ejectors and grain containing 1080 (sodium fluroacetate) poison.
This pest control operation aims to reduce the impacts and populations of feral pigs, dogs and foxes in these parks and surrounding private property.
1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) is lethal to domestic animals. Dogs, cats and stock are prohibited in lands managed by NPWS. Please be aware of the risk of lethal 1080 poisoning, and keep domestic animals and stock away from baiting areas at all times. All baiting locations will be identified by signs.
The program will be continuous and ongoing in:
- Arakoola Nature Reserve
- Bullala National Park
- Burral Yurrul National Park and Nature Reserve
- Dthinna Dthinnawan National Park and Nature Reserve
- Gunyerwarildi National Park
