NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a ground baiting program in Timmallallie National Park, Pilliga East State Conservation Area, Willala Aboriginal Area and Pilliga Nature Reserve from Tuesday 17th May 2022 to Saturday 17th September 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 local Castlereagh NPWS area office for more information on 02 6843 4000.
