Other planned events: Notice of 1080 ongoing program
Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is conducting a ground baiting program in Pilliga State Conservation Area and Pilliga National Park (Gilgai section) from 3 May 2022 to 31 December 2022.
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species.
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 Australian Wildlife Conservancy on 0457 873 871 or the NPWS Castlereagh Area office on 02 6843 4000 for more information.
