Safety alerts: Notice of 1080 baiting

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting a 1080 baiting program using meat baits and M44 ejectors containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of wild dogs and foxes. The program is aimed at the protection of the endangered brush-tailed rock wallaby and other native animals, and to reduce attacks on domestic stock in the adjacent Congewai Valley. The program will be ongoing between Monday 11 October 2021 and Friday 15 July 2022.

The program will target the northern side of the park, including some private properties bordering the Congewai Valley with the consent of land-owners. Meat baits will also be delivered by helicopter on one day between Monday 11 October and Friday 15 October 2021.

All baiting locations will be identified by signs.

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.

For further information please email or call NPWS Central Coast area office at Lake Munmorah on 02 4972 9000.
