Other planned events: NOTICE OF AERIAL SHOOTING OPERATION 3rd - 9th March 2024
National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting an aerial shooting program targeting vertebrate pest animals such as wild goats, feral deer and feral pigs.
The program is scheduled between 3 March & 9 March 2024.
Exact dates for each park are not fixed to allow for flexibility if circumstances such as weather impact the operation. Aerial shooting is planned to occur in the following reserves:
Yathong Nature Reserve, Nombinnie Nature Reserve & Nombinnie State Conservation Area, Round Hill Nature Reserve
Information regarding park closures can be found on the NPWS website: https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/alerts/alerts-list
If you believe that your stock have strayed into any of the parks listed above, then please contact your local NPWS office so you can organise the removal of stock prior to the 26 February 2024.
NPWS takes a strategic and integrated approach to pest management on lands we manage. We aim to minimise the adverse impacts of pests on Biosecurity, biodiversity, cultural values, neighbours and the community. Only qualified and appropriately trained personnel will participate in this program.
Aerial shooting supplements other control measures which can include trapping, ground shooting and baiting. If you have any questions regarding the aerial shooting program, please call your local NPWS Central West Area office at Dubbo on (02) 6841 7100, or Bathurst on (02) 6332 7640.
