ACT Parks and Conservation Service will be conducting a 1080 baiting program from Wednesday 27 September to 25 November 2017 targeting wild dogs. The 1080 (sodium fluroacetate) will be used in buried meat baits which are laid along fire trails in various areas of Namadgi National Park and Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, as well as Pierces Creek, Oakey Creek and Blue Range pine plantations.

The purpose of the poisoning program is to protect livestock from wild dog attacks.

Baiting will not occur within 500 metres of inhabited dwellings, and all baited areas will be clearly indicated with warning signage.

This is a biannual program. For more information contact the ACT Parks and Conservation Service Pest Management Officer through Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
