Other planned events: Notice of 1080 Pest management program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing aerial baiting program in Gundabooka National Park and State Conservation Area from Monday 2 May 2022 to Friday 3 June 2022.

The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.

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 Bourke NPWS area office for more information on (02) 6830 0200.

Affects 2 parks and 12 locations nearby. Show list
