Other planned events: 1080 wild dog and fox control program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a strategic ground and aerial baiting program for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The operations will involve the use of meat, manufactured products and Canid Pest Ejectors (CPE’s) containing Poison 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate). The program will be continuous and ongoing from Thursday 31 December 2020 to Wednesday 30 June 2021 in the following parks, reserves and state conservation areas:
- Abercrombie National Park and State Conservation Area
- Gardens of Stone National Park
- Wollemi National Park
- Blue Mountains National Park
- Turon National Park
- Marrangaroo National Park
- Mares Forest National Park
- Kanangra-Boyd National Park
- Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve
These programs have been designed to meet NPWS priority conservation and state focused biosecurity issues. All baiting locations will be signposted.
Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks and reserves. 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.
