Other planned events: 1080 fox baiting program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service is doing 1080 ground baiting of foxes in Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve and the northern section of Kanangra-Boyd National Park.

This baiting program will run from Thursday 3 October 2019 to Tuesday 31 March 2020. It will reduce the impacts of foxes on native animals including the threatened brush-tailed rock wallaby.

There will be 1080 baiting signs at the entrance to baiting areas. Don't touch baits or ejector devices. Some baits may be buried. Penalties apply for non-compliance.

Domestic pets, including dogs, are not permitted in national parks or reserves. 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) baits are lethal to domestic dogs and cats. Restrain working and assistance dogs to ensure that they don't enter the baiting areas. If you need your dogs to work in the baiting area, we suggest muzzling them. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary advice.
