Other planned events: Notice of 1080 aerial baiting program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting an aerial baiting program in the following parks, reserves and state conservation areas from Sunday 22 May to Sunday 5 June 2022:
- Barakee National Park
- Barakee State Conservation Area
- Biriwal Bulga National Park
- Bugan Nature Reserve
- Ghin-Doo-Ee National Park
- Goonook Nature Reserve
- Talawahl Nature Reserve
- Talawahl State Conservation Area
- Tapin Tops National Park
- Wallamba Nature Reserve
The operation will use 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes.
The program is designed to minimise predator impacts on wildlife, especially threatened species, and to minimise the impact of wild dogs on neighbouring stock.
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 NPWS Manning Great Lakes area office for more information on 02 6591 0300.
