Safety alerts: 1080 pest management program
A 1080 baiting program targeting feral pests such as foxes and wild dogs is happening in Watagans National Park from Monday 18 May to Wednesday 10 June 2020. Roads will be affected, and they include:
- Part of Watagan Forest Road
- Bowmans Road
- Dannys Point Road
- Ingles Road
- Carrolls Road
- Georges Road
The program is focused on the protection of native and threatened animal species such as brush-tailed rock wallabies.
Domestic animals are not permitted in national parks at any time. Baits should not be handled or disturbed by unauthorised people. Dog owners should ensure that their dogs do not wander, because 1080 is poisonous for dogs. If your animal is accidentally poisoned, seek urgent veterinary assistance.
