This alert applies to the following parks:

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and Partnerships (QPWS&P) is undertaking an extended ground baiting program for feral animals from 24 February 2023 until 24 February 2024. Manufactured baits will be used to control feral pigs and foxes on Conway National Park (Lot 43 on NPW1144 and Lot 1 on NPW1145), Dryander National Park (Lot 24 on AP19346), Dryander State Forest (Lot 432 on AP19346) and Dryander Forest Reserve (Lot 5 on AP19346). Notices will be placed at the Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service office at Jubilee Pocket and at the Whitsunday Regional Council offices at Proserpine and Cannonvale for one week prior to each baiting event. These notices will remain in place for four weeks after baiting has finished. Notices will also be placed at the entrances of the Conway Circuit on Conway National Park and at Double Bay on Dryander National Park. Dogs and other domestic pets are not permitted within the protected areas. Steps must be taken to ensure domestic dogs do not gain access to the baits or poisoned animals. Neighbours should restrain dogs and other domestic animals during baiting programs.
