This alert applies to the following parks:

The Department of Environment and Science is undertaking an aerial baiting program as part of a feral pig management program on Thursday 12 October 2023. Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) meat baits will be used to control feral pigs in 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). A licensed operator will distribute the baits by helicopter. These baits will not be collected. Notices will be placed at the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service office at Jubilee Pocket and the Whitsunday Regional Council offices at Proserpine and Cannonvale for one week prior to the baiting event. Notices will also be placed at the entrances of the Conway Circuit, Conway National Park and at Double Bay, Dryander National Park. These notices will remain in place for four weeks after baiting has finished. This Park Alert will remain in place for the same period. Dogs and other domestic animals are not permitted within the listed protected areas. Steps must be taken to ensure domestic dogs do not gain access to the 1080 baits or poisoned animals. Neighbours should restrain dogs and other domestic animals during baiting programs.
