Other planned events: Ongoing Poison 1080 ground baiting program - controlling fox impacts for Biosecurity values.

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a ground baiting program using Canid Pest Ejectors (CPE) that contain 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.

The program will be ongoing between 17 March 2024 and 17 September 2024 along management trails in Tollingo Nature Reserve and Woggoon Nature Reserve.

Readily identifiable 1080 poison signs have been positioned at trail entry points or trail junctions throughout the reserve.

Pets and working dogs should be restrained or muzzled in the vicinity and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
