Aerial Fox Baiting at Jenolan for Bush-tailed Rock-Wallaby Conservation

NSW Government Blue Mountains Branch National Parks & Wildlife Service wish to advise that an aerial fox baiting program using 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) will be conducted in parts of Jenolan Karst Conservation Reserve and Kanangra-Boyd National Park commencing Monday 1 June 2020.
 
Aerial 1080 poison meat baits will be laid entirely within the boundaries of these parks. Properties adjacent to these parks may be in the vicinity of baits.
 
This program intends to supplement the ongoing monthly ground fox baiting program currently being conducted until 1 October 2020.
 
These baiting programs aim to reduce the threat posed by foxes to endangered brush-tailed rock-wallabies (Petrogale penicillata) and other native animals, especially after the recent extensive bushfires.
 
Please do not touch baits. 1080 poison is lethal to pets, including dogs and cats (pets are not permitted in NSW National Parks). Working dogs should be muzzled if they are required to work on or near the baiting locations, during and after poisoning. In the event of accidental poisoning, seek immediate veterinary assistance.
 
Please also do not hesitate to contact ​NSW Government Blue Mountains Branch National Parks & Wildlife Service, Trent Forge on 4784 7308 or Mikala Jones on 4784 7302 if you have any questions about the program.
