Other planned events: Notice of 1080 baiting
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a strategic baiting program for the control of wild dogs and foxes. The operation will involve aerial baiting using approved meat baits and meat bait products containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison. The program will be continuous from Monday 27 July to Friday 7 August 2020 in the following park and state conservation area:
- Nattai National Park
- Bargo State Conservation Area
These programs have been designed to meet NPWS priority conservation and state-focused biosecurity issues. Warning signs will be displayed to notify the public about the poison program. Visitors are reminded not to handle or disturb any baits.
Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks and reserves. 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.
For further information, call the NPWS Hawkesbury Nattai area office on 02 4720 6200.
