Other incidents: 1080 baiting program - ongoing ground and aerial baiting

An ongoing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) wild dog ground and aerial baiting program will be conducted between Tuesday 24 September 2018 and Monday 26 November 2018, weather permitting in this reserve. 

There will be signs at main park entry points and around the baited areas to alert the public about 1080 baiting in these parks. 1080 baits will not be placed in the vicinity of campgrounds, lookouts, walking tracks or picnic areas. However, baits may be placed along existing trails within these reserves during ground baiting, as per the Pesticide Control (1080 Liquid Concentrate and Bait Products) Order.

The program is part of an integrated pest animal control strategy involving Local Land Services and landholders. This includes trapping and shooting, with the aim to minimise the impact of pests on neighbouring stock. The majority of reserves within the Northern Tablelands area will be baited during this time.

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. 1080 is poisonous to humans if swallowed and harmful if absorbed by the skin or inhaled. If poisoning occurs, contact the Poisons Information Centre on 13 11 26.

For more information please contact the NPWS Northern Tablelands area office on 02 6736 0700.
