Other planned events: Notice of ongoing 1080 program

The Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is conducting an ongoing ground baiting program. The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes.

Ground baiting will occur in Pilliga National Park and Pilliga State Conservation Area.

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.

For more information please contact the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) on 0456 561 770 or NPWS Castlereagh Area on 02 6843 4000.
