Other planned events: 1080 aerial and ground baiting for wild dogs
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be undertaking 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) aerial and ground baiting for wild dog and fox control in the following parks and reserves:
- New England National Park
- Jobs Mountain Nature Reserve
- Serpentine Nature Reserve
- Mount Hyland nature reserve and state conservation area
- Gagul Waajaarr Nature Reserve
The program starts on Monday 20 May and will finish by Friday 30 August 2019.
This baiting program is being carried out as part of a broader coordinated control program cooperatively with Northern Tablelands Local Land Services and Forestry Corporation of NSW. This is to reduce the impacts of wild dogs on stock and wildlife. The program is part of an integrated regional pest management strategy.
Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. Neighbours and visitors are reminded that 1080 baits are lethal to domestic pets.
All areas will have 1080 baiting signs at the access points to areas where baiting is happening. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
For more information, please call the NPWS Coffs Coast area office on 02 6652 0900.
