Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 program in Oolambeyan NP

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program from 14 February 2024 to 13 August 2024. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of feral foxes.

The program will take place in Oolambeyan National Park.

The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise impact of foxes 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 Griffith NPWS area office for more information on (02) 6966 8100.
