Wild dogs and foxes are listed as priority pests in all regions of New South Wales, which places a duty on private landholders and public land managers under the Biosecurity Act 2015 to minimise the negative impacts of these species on their land and neighbouring lands. This Conservation Risk Assessment has been prepared to ensure aerial baiting programs will not have an adverse impact on native wildlife populations.
