Other planned events: Notice of 1080 pest management program
NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be conducting a baiting program using meat and manufactured bait products containing 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) poison for the control of foxes and wild dogs. The program will be conducted between 1 July 2020 until Thursday 30 June 2022.
All baiting locations will be identifiable by signs. Domestic pets are not permitted in NSW national parks. Pets and working dogs may be affected, and 1080 is lethal to cats and dogs. Pets and working dogs in the vicinity must be restrained or muzzled and must not enter the baiting location. In the event of accidental poisoning seek immediate veterinary assistance.
These programs are run to protect threatened species identified in the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan and Saving our Species programs.
We encourage landholders to participate in control programs on private property. Contact North Coast Local Land Services to discuss and arrange programs. Delays may occur due to unsuitable weather conditions.
Penalties apply for non-compliance. For more information call the NPWS Clarence area office in Grafton on 02 6641 1500.
