The 1080 fox-baiting and ejector program will commence on Monday 8

th of August 2022. Baits will be used until Monday 19th of December 2022. Where wild dogs are detected during these programs they will also be controlled. Signs will be located at entrances to reserves where baits for foxes and wild dogs have been laid.

These programs are priority initiatives of the NSW Fox Threat Abatement Plan for the protection of

breeding threatened shorebirds. The programs are supported by the Dept. of Defence, North Coast
