Other planned events: Aerial Shooting Program
NPWS will be conducting an aerial control program between 13 and 17 March 2024. The program is for the management of feral pigs and other vertebrate pest animals within Yanga reserves. No visitor areas are affected but some areas may be closed to the public during the control operations. If poor weather occurs, it may not be possible to undertake the control in some reserves.
Aerial shooting supplements other control measures which can include trapping, mustering, ground shooting and baiting.
NPWS takes a strategic and integrated approach to pest management on lands we manage. We aim to minimise the adverse impacts of pests on biodiversity, cultural values, neighbours, and the community. Only qualified and appropriately trained personnel will participate in this program.
