Other planned events: 1080 wild dog and fox pest management program underway
NPWS is advising all neighbours and visitors that it is monitoring wild dogs and foxes and running a 1080 wild dog and fox pest management program in the following national parks:
- Everlasting Swamp National Park
- Everlasting Swamp State Conservation Area
- Yuraygir National Park
- Yuraygir State Conservation Area
We encourage landholders to participate in control programs on private property. Contact North Coast Local Land Services to discuss and arrange programs.
These programs are run to protect threatened species identified in the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan and Saving our Species programs.
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. Delays may occur due to unsuitable weather conditions and associated restricted access. NPWS may also run additional programs following these initial programs, depending on wild dog activity. Domestic pets are highly susceptible to 1080 poison. Dogs, cats and other pets and domestic animals are not permitted in NSW national parks, reserves and state conservation areas.
For more information call the NPWS Clarence area office in Grafton on 02 6641 1500.
