THE annual fox baiting program to protect threatened shorebirds in the Northern Rivers Region is about to begin.

National Parks and Wildlife Service Pest Management Officer, Lisa Wellman said the areas to be targeted are Brunswick Heads (north) and Richmond River Nature Reserves, as well as Broadwater and Bundjalung National Parks.

"Baits will be laid in the coastal dunes and management trails of these parks and reserves from Wednesday July 1 to Friday December 18, 2015", Ms Wellman said.

"The program aims to reduce fox numbers during the Pied Oystercatcher's breeding season."
